About Us

The Bay of Connections supports sustainable economic development in the wider Bay of Plenty, including the Eastern Bay of Plenty, Western Bay of Plenty, Rotorua and Taupō.

With a focus on communication and collaboration, we ensure communities, businesses, agencies, working groups, and local and central government come together to take action in a way that benefits the region as a whole.

We champion projects that celebrate the unique attributes of each sub-region, and lead to long-term positive cultural, economic, environmental and social outcomes.
