I have been part of the Venues team since 2018. I originally joined as Event Coordinator, and in 2023 I stepped into the role of Acting Events Manager. Events are my passion. I love that each day is different, I love meeting and working with new people, and I love the fast-paced and ever-changing landscape of events. My main motivation for each day is to strive to provide exceptional customer service to everyone I work with, and my goal is that all our clients have the best experience possible when they book an event with us.  

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time rowing at Lake Karapiro. I love to spend time with my husband and our English bulldog, Stanley, and enjoy winding down the day with a gin in the sunshine.

Sarah Kington

Events Administrator
(07) 834 8800 ext 3288

I’ve had the privilege of working part time in the venues team since 2012. I love the fact that there tends to be no two days the same, the flexibility my role offers, and the passion my fellow colleagues demonstrate when putting awesome events together and seeing the end result.

I grew up in Hamilton and live on three acres with my husband, two children, an extremely boisterous English Staffy, a cat, and a couple of steers in the paddock. Outside of work I am a strong supporter of my children’s sporting and school activities (taxi driver), I enjoy gardening as a stress reliever and love a glass of Pinot Noir to wind down my day.

I began working at Wintec in 2004 in a similar role and then was fortunate enough to join the venues team in 2011. Since then, there has been a variety of clients through The Training Space, and we especially appreciate our longstanding clients.

I have lived in Hamilton for 25+ years, and it’s a great place to relax and enjoy some of the cafes and restaurants on offer. I like to head out on the cycle trails when I can, as there is so much to explore, catch up with friends on weekends, and go to the movies and live theatre when it's on.
