Case Study 1: "Create an event to entertain & inspire" 

One night to bring the glacial lands and Maori culture of New Zealand to life in an exclusive gala dinner designed to entertain and inspire.

Hosted at Mount Soho in Queenstown allowed for a large outdoor welcome that followed into an indoor glacial reception. Complete with ice sculptures, performers and a fully transformed interior, guests were transported to a land unexplored.

From the reception to the formal dinner, guests transitioned into a land of Maori culture complete with Maori performers and a full theatrical piece that brought many mythical stories and legends to life.

From initial concept through to the night, Touch of Spice took care of everything from design, styling, venue transformation, catering, performers, artists, transfers, event management, one site staff and a hotel buy out to host guests for the night.








Case Study 2: "A product launch to remember"

A unique and out-of-this-world product launch that would keep the worlds media talking for a long time to come.

Venturing into the wild into a remote glacial valley by either 4WD or by private heli, guests experienced the rugged beauty of New Zealand’s peaks, rivers and natural wonders on their arrival at ‘base camp’’. Here, guests were greeted by our experienced wilderness guides, private chefs and staff who were on hand throughout to look after their every need want and desire.

Guests enjoyed a private bar, gourmet dinner featuring local produce and of course the stunning surroundings. As the sun set in the remote valley, campfires were roaring, and the evenings entertainment came out to shine – the unforgettable  Southern Stars.

This was a product launch like no other.






Case Study 3: "A wedding fit for royalty"

Hosted at Peregrine Winery in Central Otago, we worked closely with the venue and our in-house stylist to transform the bare structure into a wedding reception full of glitz and glam with complete attention to detail. 

With a formal dinner reception and additional relax lounge area over looking the surrounding land, the reception offered a space for both the formalities and and the parties. 

Draped in pearls, flowers and with layered table settings, no expense was spared in the creation of this happy and memorible day.
