The Barge Showgrounds Events Centre is in really lovely grounds and has proven to be very appropriate for the Educational meetings that Manaia Health PHO has been holding there this year. The booking and organizing staff are very helpful, with the room set up for us. The audience and presenters, often from out of town have no problems getting there, and parking is not a problem. We have up to 100 people in the venue and the feedback on the venue has always been positive. We use the facilities at night and the locking up of the facility is well explained and there has not ever been a problem.
