Festival Organisers Electric About New Sponsor!

Tourism Coromandel are delighted to announce a new partnership with Mercury Energy, who this week signed on as major sponsors of the 2004 Pohutukawa Festival.

Mercury Energy’s involvement in this year’s festival will allow the two and a half week event to be taken to new levels, showcasing the best the Coromandel Peninsula has to offer!

The Mercury Energy Pohutukawa Festival will celebrate the Coromandel’s launch into summer touching all of the major towns on the Peninsula. Events and activities are planned for Coromandel, Whitianga, Hahei, Tairua, Pauanui, Thames and Whangamata.

Carl Muir, Events Manager for Tourism Coromandel is delighted that Mercury Energy has come on board. “Mercury Energy is one of the country’s leading brands so we are naturally ecstatic to have them on board. The partnership will provide the platform to ensure the festival is a huge success this year.”

“The benefits of the festival will flow on to the community as a whole with the size and scale of the festival providing a huge boost for the region.”

Mark Carter, Mercury Energy’s General Manager, Consumer Markets, says the environmental and family friendly themes running through the festival form the perfect match with the company. “We are very excited to be supporting this year’s festival which promotes two values that are very important to us at Mercury Energy – family involvement and environmental awareness.”

Mercury Energy has received several accolades for its environmental achievements. The company has been awarded a Diamond Enviro-Mark, the highest achievement level of an international standard for environmental performance, and recently won the Renewable Energy EECA EnergyWise Award, for its work in promoting energy efficiency.

The Mercury Energy Pohutukawa Festival will feature a range of unique, standout events including appearances from some popular New Zealand celebrities. Festival organisers are already flat out preparing for a celebration that will cater for both the local community and the large numbers of visitors expected to partake in the range of events and activities.

The festival kicks off on 25 November with a fun and comical debate between the East and West Coasts of the Peninsula and culminates in a Jazz Lunch at Mercure Grand Puka Park Lodge in Pauanui on 12 December.

Over 50 cuisine, outdoors, marine and community events will take place in between, coinciding with the flowering of New Zealand’s favourite native tree.
