Allied Te Matatini Events Sold Out
Media Release 15 February 2017
ALLIED TE MATATINI EVENTS SOLD OUT
Ngāti Kahungunu is pleased to announce that both the Taniwha Dragon Economic Summit and the Paua Club are sold out. This supports the twin strategy that culture and commerce co-exist and that Te Matatini has drawn people from both sectors like moths to a flame.
To date, over 40,000 Te Matatini tickets have been sold and the numbers have exceeded the expectations of the organisers. We regret that all 20,000 iwi discounted tickets have sold and we urge people to go online to the Te Matatini website to purchase tickets at the full price.www.tematatini.co.nz
