The impact the New Zealand Festival has on Wellington

The New Zealand Festival has recently released the impact report on the 2018 Festival which shows that the Festival contributed over $25 million in GDP to the city’s economy, and provided 309,000 attendees with unique entertainment experiences.

JacksonStone’s partnership with the New Zealand Festival is very easy to justify;  we are a committed Wellington business and we take great pride in supporting the vibrancy,stimulation and sheer enjoyment that the Festival delivers to Wellington.  A component of our partnership involves us providing executive recruitment support to the Festival. We know that a highly capable and talented team underpins the Festival’s success and it’s growth aspirations, so using our skills to help them seek out and appoint the best talent around is something we really enjoy doing.
