Tēnā koe Victoria,
On behalf of myself and the wider Local Organising Committee Board and team, a heart-felt thank you for your support in helping to make the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022 such a wonderful success.
Over an incredible 31 days from March 4 to April 3 the sporting world was wowed by the incredible feats of the world's best female cricketers as eight nations went head-to-head for the sport's biggest prize.
The event featured nail-biting contests, saw individual records smashed, engaged new audiences and, ultimately, drew a sell-out crowd to Hagley Oval for a fitting finale as Australia were rightfully crowned world champions.
At the start of this journey we, the tournament organisers, set out to “own the moment and lead the change” – to play our part in the elevation of women's cricket and women's sport in general as sport travels the path towards genuine equity.
When it came time to market the tournament, that internal guiding principle was encapsulated by the event's public call to arms: “Let's Show Them.”
Well, we sure showed them. We couldn't have done that without your support. The tournament's success was in large part due to the hard work, dedication, and unwavering support of our partners.
For this we are hugely grateful.
I hope you will reflect on what we together were able to deliver in the most challenging circumstances with genuine pride.

'With Experience Group as the official hospitality provider to the New Zealand Rugby Union I have worked closely on test match hospitality sales and delivery from 1999 to 2014.
Experience Group have also delivered sales, services and events to the two biggest rugby events in the last decade being the Lions tour hospitality programme and the Rugby World Cup sales programme in 2011.
Warren and his team operate with the highest integrity. They have developed into an extremely professional and high class operation in which their attention to detail and follow up service sets them apart'.
'SKYCITY Catering & Events worked with the Experience Group to deliver the Barfoot & Thompson 90th Birthday Celebration Dinner at the ASB Showground's on March 9th, 2013.
We found the Experience Group to be professional, efficient and easy to work with throughout the planning and execution of the event. The Experience Group have extremely high standard for their clients and set SYKCITY Catering & Events strict KPI's to achieve on the night of the event.
The Experience Group always have their client's needs at the forefront and strive to exceed expectations. Because of this the Barfoot and Thompson 90th Birthday Celebration Dinner was a huge success'.

'The Experience Group has been providing corporate hospitality services at Eden Park since 2002. Much has changed over that time, however their knowledge of the park and the experience they have gained around the provision of hospitality is invaluable.
Eden Park currently works closely with Experience Group under a joint venture (Eden Park Experience) whereby all casual hospitality is managed by Experience Group.
I find Warren an his team professional and reliable. Their reputation here at Eden Park reflects this and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to rights holders, event mangers or venues'.

'I would like to personally thank you and your team for the management of our VIP's and senior government officials from Vietnam on their official visit recently.
"With the Vice President of the People's Republic of Vietnam present on this official trip, the onus and pressure on us to ensure all VIP elements were covered was significant"
..The Experience Group delivered exactly what I was looking for. The management of the charter boat event, security and liaison with private protection agencies and NZ Police, logistics, parking, transportation, hosting and staff, official presentations and personal gifts was all undertaken in a professional yet personal manner.
I would like to thank you for making this very important event such a success for Zedex. If we are looking to do this again in the future I will definitely be in touch with you.'

'The Experience Group ensured our 'Dressing Room' event ran smoothly, and our function was arranged with precision. Our guests were highly entertained by the tour of the Eden Park grounds, and the meeting of the three Super 14 players was very informative
'We thank the Experience Group for a very professional event.'
'Our clients had nothing but praise for the way everything flowed on Saturday, the venue and the F&B. In all they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, supported by Thank You emails that came through on Monday. So thanks to the team at Experience Group for the professional manner they showed in both the lead up to the event and on the day.'

"I have worked with Victoria Hunt for four year on a variety of events and activations. It has been simply a pleasure to deal with her in this time- she is organised, calm under pressure and always friendly. Nothing seems to frazzle her and she just gets on with the job. Most importantly - she does the job well!"

"We have been using the services of the Experience Group for many years and we have enjoyed concerts, travel, accommodation and expert advice during that time. We email our travel intentions, our dates and Melanie Allan at Experience Group truly does the rest. Our travel is always seamless, our seats are always the best on the plane, train, boat or concert venue and we know with certainty all our travelling needs will be taken care of. The service provided is friendly, professional and above all caring. We are listened to, understood and we cannot speak highly enough of the personal attention we receive from the Experience Group and especially Melanie Allen. It is first class."
'A massive thank you for all of your planning! The feedback from the Hurricanes sponsors was awesome! They can't stop thanking us for the well planned trip, and that is all thanks to you!

Without exception they all had a great time in Japan and Phuket, so much so it was sufficient to blot out what we always knew was going to be a long, drawn out trip up there. We know the reasons why that was unavoidable, but we will learn from it for future trips. Thanks to the success of this one, we are now under pressure to repeat sooner rather than later.
Focusing entirely on the positives, we are grateful for the hard work you and Experience Travel put into making it a fantastic team building experience, and we are feeling the benefit now in our day to day contact with our dealers. The trip had the desired affect in getting the various guys to recognise the positives in being part of a network, albeit spread around the country. No splinter groups thanks to you, and of course our staff members also on the trip.
I was pleased to hear you found the Kawasaki experience interesting and enjoyable. You were the perfect fit for this group of guys and we are very happy with the outcome and continuing feedback.

My clients went to London and Leeds on your Black Caps tour in London and Leeds - Meiklejohns. Just heard back from them and they absolutely loved it..a really well organised fun trip - Pip was amazing and Tony a real character.
Royal Garden hotel in London was amazing (Leeds was a bit tired but OK).
Thought you'd like to hear their feedback - I will certainly contact you again on their next cricket adventure - if you want to put my email on your mailing list I can forward to client.
