Eastern Bay to host the 2020 Hui Takataapui

It's been announced that the Eastern Bay has won the hosting bid to hold the 2020 Hui Takataapui.

The winning bid to host the 2020 Hui was announced at this year's conference in Hastings.

David Jones, Communications Adviser for the Organising Committee, says they had signaled their desire to host the national conference for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Maori some time ago, but knew they were up against a number of other towns.

He says he's especially looking forward to showcasing the region's natural beauty and welcoming communities.
Mr Jones says they are expecting around 300 - 400 attendees.
