Sponsors of the Waikato Boat, Fishing & Leisure Show add to the success of the exhibition. Without their continuing support, the premier marine expo would not be possible.

Hosting an event of any description is not just about “venue hire” but about the entire “event experience” at Mystery Creek Events Centre.  At Mystery Creek Events Centre we focus on ensuring that the event experience exceeds the client’s expectations and is enjoyed by all participants.
Mystery Creek Events Centre is owned and operated by the NZ National Fieldays Society. The Society operates as a non-profit organisation, registered with the Charities Commission. The Society consists of a pool of dedicated volunteers and a professional event management team.
