A world-class event

Are you a winter sports lover? Then you’ll love what the Winter Games NZ has to offer.

Each year, two weeks of thrilling competitions are set amongst spectacular snowy South Island scenery. With the best international competitors thrashing it out in 26 events across 7 different winter sports and 6 venues.

Events such as the Night Parallel Slalom with music pumping for the audience gives the event a real party feel. And the ski races are always exhilarating to watch.

Coronet Peak and Cardrona Alpine Resort play host to some of the biggest crowd pullers. With many other impressive events spread across Naseby, Queenstown and Wanaka. There’s a lot of action packed into one fortnight.

What sets the Winter Games NZ apart from other global snow sport festivals, is the calibre of the participants, organisers and sponsors. Managed for many years by Winter Games NZ Trust, this team of snow and event enthusiasts know how to keep their stakeholders and crowds happy. They’ve put on a high-quality event year on year by keeping the bar high. Which has pulled in big name sponsors and thousands to the event each time.

World-class brand activation

The Winter Games continues to attract big brands like SKY, The North Face, Forsyth Barr, Skyline, Mediaworks, Red Bull, Audi, Air NZ, Asahi and Champagne Mumm. Synonymous with quality, innovation and style, these names have been the sponsors of the games in past years, and have wowed watchers with their brand activation.

Audi, gave fans the chance to take their newest model for a high speed spin in the snow. And we’re sure those who were lucky enough to have a go will remember the experience forever. And Red Bull is famous for amping up the crowd with their loud beats and product giveaways. We could go on and on.

Expandasign is proud to have been the official signage supplier for as long as it has been running. The event is a great fit as it demands exceptional quality from its suppliers, and an extra mile level of service.

It’s been fantastic to see our Expandasign flags, media walls, banner mesh and other portable signage used right across the festival by everyone involved.

It’s also provided the opportunity to experiment with outside the box ideas. Such as the concept of embedding Air NZ’s famous renowned koru into the side of the half pipe used for the snowboarding events. Talk about stand out branding.

Working with Expandasign has been a pleasure, because we know we are given an excellent level of service with the best production values for all our branding and our sponsor’s branded products. The team at Expandasign go above and beyond to make sure we are delivered materials on time, under tight deadlines and we can trust those items will not only withstand the elements of being in an alpine environment, but also look amazing.
