Ataahua found this in the one-minute miceNZ e-newsletter – a tourism industry magazine in New Zealand:

“Not only can visitors take a stroll through Peter Jackson’s Hobbiton film set near Matamata, but a refurbishment of a conference and function centre there means groups can now meet on the set too.

The Shire’s Rest is opposite the entrance to Hobbiton and can cater for conference and incentive groups with tours, meals and team-building activities. The venue holds 160 theatre-style or 130 banquet-style and of course Lord of the Rings-themed events are easily arranged.”
