What is the theme of the 2024 New Zealand Ball?
KIWIANA! This is a celebration of New Zealand's unique cultural icons, such as the Buzzy Bee toy, the Edmonds Cookbook, hei tiki pendants, Hokey Pokey ice cream, gumboots, Anzac biscuits, pāua shells, and summer holidays at the bach. This classic Kiwi theme promises to give you a memorable 'taste of NZ' - great NZ wine, great food and the ever-popular Kiwi band that will have you dancing your sox off! A silent auction and a huge raffle pool will complement the theme, with proceeds supporting community outreach programs in Thailand, so please bring plenty of cash on the night!!
How much are the tickets and how do we pay/collect for tickets?
Tickets are THB 5,000 each. Payment must be made via bank transfer to the New Zealand Society Thailand. Full details and instructions will be provided in your booking confirmation email
How will the booking of tickets be managed?
To simplify and streamline the booking process, we are using an online booking system for tickets available through our website.
What will I need to book online?
The system will require your name, email address and contact phone number.
What about meals or special dietary requirements?
All meals and dietary requirements must be confirmed as soon as possible
Is there a limit to the number of tables/tickets I can book?
We have worked hard to make more tables available, so this should not be an issue for 2024.
Can I register for only 2 tickets or do I have to book a table of 10?
Yes – you can book for a small number of tickets. You do not necessarily have to book a table of 10. However, please be advised that where you book less than 10 seats, we will allocate you the next best available table/seats.
Can I book a table to seat 12 people ?
Ideally, we prefer tables (x10), as larger tables are more of a challenge to accommodate and service amongst the normal size tables. However, if there is an absolute necessity, then please book your table of 10, and email us your request. NB: We are limited to 4 tables of 12 (as a maximum) and these tables are likely to be placed either on the edge of the room or in a corner.
Can I choose our table?
We will allocate you the next best available table.
Can I book a table near my friend’s table?
We will try our best to accomodate this request, please let us know by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I cancel my booking?
Yes – You can cancel your table booking before payment. After payment, we cannot accept cancellations.
What happens if tickets sell out?
We have worked hard to make more seats available, so we do not anticipate an immediate sellout. However, if we do sell out of tickets, a wait list will be activated. Please register your interest to be on the wait-list via the online ticketing system. You will be contacted as soon as seats become available.
Is the Ball fancy dress or themed?
No – The theme's for the NZ Ball change every year, however the dress standard for this prestigious, gala event is ‘Black Tie’ or formal dress code.
Is there a special rate for guests staying in the hotel?
Yes - the hotel is offering a special rate of THB 4,000 net per night and include breakfast and internet access. The booking link is here: NZ BALL RESERVATION LINK
Do proceeds from the NZ Ball go to charity?
Proceeds are shared between the NZ Society and the NZ-Thai Chamber of Commerce. In the past, we have jointly supported several rural schools in the Kanchanaburi region, the Thailand Hilltribe Education Project (THEP) in Mae Hon Song province and the Children of the Forrest Foundation in Sangkhla Buri.
