Conference Centre

Te Mātauranga o Korekore is a purpose-built, two-storey conference centre located behind the Central North Island Kindergarten Trust offices on 4 Glenshea St, Putaruru.

The modern facility has two large conference rooms that can be separated to create four smaller, more intimate spaces for seminars and quiet gatherings.
Fully air conditioned, equipped with a kitchen and bathroom, and with a wide verandah extending out from the indoor space, there are plenty of ways for you to use our rooms to make your next event a comfortable and welcoming one.
There is car parking available on site and Putaruru town centre is a very short walk, where you will find cafes and shops for your convenience.
Central Kids is a smokefree environment and this policy extends to the use of our conference rooms as well.
