At BDO Rotorua we believe that being in business in Rotorua means supporting our community. We support cultural, sport and community organisations and events – we love getting stuck in.
Sam Osborne Triathlete
Representing Rotorua on the world stage, Sam Osborne travels the globe participating in triathlons and is no stranger to the podium. BDO Rotorua is proud to support Sam in his sporting pursuits – this sees a number of benefits to the local community. Not only is Sam able to attend more events, his representation of the local riding community and infrastructure reinforces the cycling culture Rotorua is proud to have. A 2018 economic impact study found that those who ride in Rotorua’s Redwoods Forest contribute between $30m and $50m annually to the local economy.

Following the cycling trend, Rotorua is now part of the Crankworx World Tour which occurs annually in March. Our support of this multi-day, multi-disciplinary cycling event ensures the economic impact is significant and positive for the local community. In 2019 alone, the Crankworx tour injected an estimated $4.1m into the local economy. Additionally, a number of small, locally owned businesses saw increased patronage and exposure to a number of opportunities to grow.
We as a firm recognise the generations that have gone before us and the impact they have had on the world we live in today. In support of those in need we support the Rotorua Hospice in a number of ways to ensure they can continue to do the work they do. Our support comes in a number of forms from providing morning teas to attending the annual Supper Club event. These events ensure the work that the Rotorua Hospice does is recognised and may continue.
Additionally, BDO Rotorua supports a number of other social and community ventures that have a positive impact on the local community and economy. Being locally owned and operated, we understand the importance of giving back and participating within the community.
