<strong>2023</strong> CONFERENCE & EVENTS 29<br />

H3 hosts successful AuSAE Linc <strong>2023</strong><br />

The H3 team recently welcomed over 150 association executives and industry leaders to Claudelands<br />

for The Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE) Leadership, Insights, Networking and<br />

Connections (Linc) Conference <strong>2023</strong> – the largest gathering of association executives in New Zealand.<br />

During the two-anda-half-day<br />

conference,<br />

association<br />

executives engaged with<br />

regional exhibitors and business<br />

events experts from<br />

across the country. The<br />

conference featured keynote<br />

speakers, workshop sessions,<br />

thought-provoking panel<br />

discussions, and networking<br />

opportunities, all designed to<br />

inspire, educate, and connect<br />

attendees.<br />

Melissa Williams and Brett Jeffery<br />

Brett Jeffery, AuSAE’s General<br />

Manager expressed his<br />

gratitude for the team behind<br />

the venue.<br />

“The event was undoubtedly<br />

a triumph, and much of<br />

that success can be attributed<br />

to the dedication and professionalism<br />

of the venue staff.”<br />

“H3’s commitment to excellence<br />

manifests in seemingly<br />

small yet crucial details—arriving<br />

punctually, continuously<br />

checking on the well-being of<br />

attendees and staff.”<br />

“Moreover, the management<br />

style is one of respect<br />

and courtesy; the team possesses<br />

an extraordinary ability<br />

to coordinate with their team<br />

in a way that is both effective<br />

and respectful.”<br />

“The event logistics were<br />

flawless. The capability to<br />

manage behind-the-scenes<br />

activities without causing any<br />

disruptions was commendable,<br />

adding another layer of<br />

excellence to our event. It’s<br />

exceedingly rare for me to find<br />

no room for constructive feedback.”<br />

“From the high-calibre<br />

catering to the meticulous<br />

attention to detail, every aspect<br />

of our event was handled with<br />

utmost care. I eagerly look forward<br />

to the possibility of future<br />

collaborations.”<br />

Melissa Williams, H3 <strong>Business</strong><br />

Development and Sales<br />

Manager - <strong>Business</strong> Events,<br />

remarked,<br />

“After many years of close<br />

collaboration with Brett Jef-<br />

fery – AuSAE’s General Manager,<br />

and Aimee Tyson, Events<br />

Manager at <strong>Business</strong> Events<br />

<strong>Waikato</strong>, it was great to see the<br />

event finally come to fruition.”<br />

“AuSAE Linc provided us<br />

and our regional partners with<br />

the opportunity to showcase<br />

our unique <strong>Waikato</strong> offering.<br />

Guests were invited to experience<br />

Hobbiton Movie Set<br />

Tours, The Red Barn, Hamilton<br />

Melissa shares, “AuSAE<br />

Linc is renowned for encouraging<br />

innovation and fostering<br />

growth, and we couldn’t be<br />

prouder to have been a part of<br />

this event and provide a space<br />

for association leaders to focus<br />

on their development and that<br />

of their teams.<br />

“Congratulations to Brett<br />

Jeffery and the AuSAE team<br />
