Capricorn Dinner & Display - 2016

Our theme this year was “As Kiwi As” We think that being in the industry for over 40 years we have become a kiwi icon and for that reason we are As Kiwi As, much like  pineapple lumps, togs, jandals, fish & chips etc ..   We celebrated this by giving away limited edition canvases which were a hit! We even dressed as jandals on the night! Not sure how many volunteers I will get next year though after the guys turned up to be told what they were wearing for the evening !

Capricorn Dinner & Display -2015 - BEST STAND AWARD  


Two weeks ago Parts Connection headed to Sky City Convention centre for the annual Capricorn Dinner & Display.  For a week or two before the evening Pam & Steph in the office (AKA Santa’s Workshop) tirelessly folded, made and packed 400 gift boxes to give away on the evening. Three days before the event the boardroom looked a little overloaded with all the boxes.
On the day, Pam set up early along with the help of the Christmas Heirloom company who decorated a 7ft tree for the stand.  
The stand was ready and Pam & Peter dashed away to change into their festive costumes… Ho Ho Ho and they were back ready to hand out Christmas presents for those who were naughty or nice, and let me just say the majority of customers that stopped by admitted they had been a little naughty this year.
On the stand Santa had many helpers so a big thank you to David & Kerwin from European Autospares & Jared & Karlos from Advanced for Ford & Holden who were the perfect ‘Elves’
Congratulations to John from J.E. Paisley & Co from Oamaru who won the $500 Christmas Hamper just for visiting our stand.
The Dinner and Dance followed the display and a great night was had by all, the best surprise was Parts Connection winning the Best Stand Award.—Well Done Team !!!

Capricorn Dinner & Display - Sky City Auckland July 2014

The Parts ConCap Dinner nection team enjoyed the Capricorn Dinner and Display at Sky City Convention Centre. 

Our stand was a tropical oasis, with yellow floral lei's and holiday pictures being taken throughout the night.  

Of course with the Win Big promotion on now, there is $20,000 worth of travel up for grabs as the grand prize...so a tropical holiday could be the answer to the Winter blues.  
 It was awesome to see our customers weaving in and out of stands with their yellow leis on, some even enjoyed wearing them at dinner and on the dance floor later in the evening!



 

 



Relay for Life - March 2014

Over the weekend of 29th & 30th March the Parts Connection group took part in the Auckland North Relay for Life event.  The event ran for 18 hours and was held at Millennium Stadium, Mairangi Bay.  The Parts Connection head office co-ordinated the teams to all have a 2 hour time slot.  All member companies took part, with some teams excelling  with nearly 30 team members.    Some of the teams were less fortunate with the times they were given and were come out to participate in the early hours of Sunday morning.  On a whole the Parts Connection group had 75  participants for the event. 
Pam, Emma and Peter from the Parts Connection head office also ran the PC BBQ truck, during the event selling sausages (kindly donated by the Aussie Butcher Botany) and from 2am Bacon Sandwiches, which brought people out of their tents to feast on.  “We are proud to support the NZ Cancer Society as part of our Win Big promotion, and this was our way of showing Parts Connection are continually striving to work with their local communities” said Pam McNickle.    Overall we managed to raise over $1000 for the Relay for Life, but also had a great intercompany team building.  A special thank you to all those who participated, employees and family members.

Capricorn Dinner & Display - Queenstown March 2014

Parts Connection had a display at the Capricorn Dinner & Display in Queenstown in March, and took away the best booth award.  It was a fun evening as Peter and Pam welcomed Capricorn members onto their stand with boarding passes and jet planes, for a ride on Win Big airways.  There were of course a few Malaysian Airways remarks.  How were we to know a plane would go missing just before the event!!

Launch of the Win Big with Parts Connection Promotion 2014

Over the last 3 weeks the Parts Connection head office team has visited all the Parts Connection members sites and cooked them breakfast, to launch the promotion and ensure everyone knows how the promotion works.  There has been a lot of work leading up to this and we are so excited that the promotion is now underway.  It has been great getting out to our members some at ridiculously early times of the morning to cook, eggs, bacon, sausages and hash browns.  In Auckland we have of course had some mornings of rain to contend with but all in all we survived!  Here are some snaps taken at our launch events….
