Tauranga By-election Forum

Monday, 23 May 2022 (5:00 PM - 7:00 PM) (NZST)


The Tauranga Business Chamber is organising and hosting a panel discussion between some of the Tauranga by-election candidates and members of the business community.  

This event is providing an opportunity for the business community to put their questions to a selection of the by-election candidates, to help them make an informed decision before polling day.  

MC: Will Johnston is the Group Auctioneer for Sotheby's, Tremains and Colliers Bay of Plenty. He's just changed careers after 20 years on air in the radio industry working all over New Zealand, most recently hosting the award-winning Day Show for The Hits BOP 95FM for the last 7 years.  His open, honest, cheeky and relaxed style on air and when MCing community events makes him relatable to all audiences and he has a knack of putting people at ease in any situation.

This will be an opportunity to get up close and personal to some of the candidates in the upcoming by election.
We will give the candidates an opportunity to tell us what they will do in their representation to the region, then we will have a panel of local business leaders, questioning each of the candidates, drilling down into the benefits for the business community.  

There will be limited seats due to COVID-19 restrictions, and there is a small registration fee to secure access to the forum.

Please register early to avoid disappointment.
