Martin Carrington from Waimea Estates serves Peter Millward (CEO Nelson Provincial Museum) at our recent Opening Function last month.
Next Tuesday evening, the 25th March, Bowater Honda are hosting the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce BNZ Partners After 5 meeting. If you are a business owner in the region this is the kind of networking you need to be involved in. A quiet yet professional forum where you can get to know other business owners in a relaxed atmosphere whilst enjoying some of our hospitality and the ambience of our new showroom in Achilles Ave.
You will be treated to some great opportunites to meet other business people that you might not ordinarily encounter on your daily activites, and be treated to some thought provoking short speeches that will hopefully enlighten and inspire.
Part of the evening will be based around a conversation regarding the exciting developments at the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary, one of the many fantastic local community projects that the Bowater Motor Group lends a helping hand too.
But what is this about a car?
A beautiful night and a stunning new showroom brought the crowds to our opening event.
Thursday the 27th February 2014 was a very significant evening for Bowater Honda. It was on this wondefully fine night we held the opening event for the newly refurbished showroom on Achilles Ave that we are so very proud of.

What surprised and delighted us was the amazing turnout by locals to attend this event. In all between 225 - 250 people came along to show their support, enjoy our hospitality and get a wee surprise themselves. We were very lucky have Murray Selby along, he is the Executive General Manager of Honda New Zealand and he bought with him a very special treat. Bowater Honda was the first Honda showroom in New Zealand to unveil the fantastic new assessment vehicle, the Honda N One - a jazzy wee urban car that is both very fuel efficient and also very very stylish, roomy and technologically advanced.
We were a little surprised ourselves by the almost overwhelming numbers of locals that turned up to show their support for our newly relocated showroom. The line stretched right out the door and snaked along the footpath at one stage! Apologies to any that had to wait in the late afternoon sun a little too long.

The finishing touches are going onto the new Bowater Honda showroom in the Wakatu Carpark as the 82 Achilles Ave site is just a day away from the staff moving in. A big step in the setting of the atmosphere of the new showroom was the installation of a gigantic panelled photographic art piece that was created by The Big Picture and printed by our friends at The Signman.

It was all go last night as the lights got switched on for the first time and we took our first official photos of the new Achilles Avenue Bowater Honda showroom.
It was a beautiful evening with the threat of a few showers, but that didn't stop us as we were too excited to move some cars in and switch on the lights.
The aim was to get a photo that we could use in our coming promotions and to start letting the good people of Nelson and Tasman know that we are officially on the move now that the lights are going to be on.
The new showroom looks absolutely stunning, and the new lighting system is going to do an excellent job of shining a light on the great range of vehicles the we are selling through the dealership. The official move in date is Monday 6th January 2014 - come on down and take a look for yourself.
