Sponsorships & Events

Our Rotorua team is committed to supporting our local business and sporting communities. BDO Rotorua is proud to sponsor one of the most epic Mountain biking festivals in the world Crankworx Rotorua, which descends on the slopes of Mount Ngongotaha. Bringing to town the world’s best downhill, slopestyle and enduro legends as well as some up and coming superstars for five days of competition and concerts.


What our clients think...

“In year one of Crankworx Rotorua the biggest challenges we faced involved convincing partners that we were going to deliver a world class event on the same scale as Crankworx Whistler. We had no track record and little experience to show that we could do it- just a team with a dream. Despite this, BDO backed our team from the very start by providing guidance with our initial shareholders agreement and tax advice to ensure we got off on the right foot. In addition, BDO has been an official sponsor of the event since those early days. 

People ask me why an accounting firm would be a sponsor of a mountain biking event. To me the answer is simple. Stephen and the BDO team understand their clients and the communities that they live in. In March 2017 we delivered our third iteration of Crankworx Rotorua. It has come a long way in just three years and BDO has been with us every step of the way.”
