The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is one of the World’s most prestigious Yacht Clubs. With a long history dating back to the 1870’s, it has also been the challenging yacht club for the America’s cup 5 times, winning the cup twice. A magnificent building on Auckland’s waterfront is home to the club. This venue includes various meeting rooms, a ballroom, a restaurant and bars.
In 2014 the club decided to implement more focus on making the facilities available to corporates, organisations and people needing a quality venue for events, conferences and meetings. The Club appointed Hayden Porter as General Manager to implement this approach. Hayden comes from a strong Hospitality background and soon set about reforming the approach to marketing and managing events.

One of the early steps was to implement Clarity Event Manager. Hayden says that “with Clarity in place, our event coordinators are able to deliver a professional response to enquiries. We follow through on all the details in a timely manner and deliver a well organised, smoothly run event. Clarity Event Manager has given us the tools to manage all of our bookings and the delivery of every aspect of an event."

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron is enjoying unprecedented use of its excellent facilities and location. It is now common to see weddings, corporate events, meetings and functions happening on most days of the week. Clarity Hospitality Software Solutions is proud to be part of the Royal NZ Yacht Squadrons success story.
