The Crossing is delighted to announce it is the new naming rights sponsor and principal partner of the fashion event on Christchurch Casino NZ Trotting Cup Day on November 12.

“We are excited about our new partnership with The Crossing.  To have such an elite shopping centre associated with Canterbury’s most prestigious event, the Christchurch Casino NZ Trotting Cup Day, will take the fashion element to the next level,” says Addington’s Business & Marketing Manager, Keryn McElroy.

Nicki Carter, of Carter Group and The Crossing, is equally excited about this partnership.  “We are thrilled to have secured this sponsorship, not just for The Crossing, but also being able to connect the central city fashion offering to a leading event during Cup and Show week.”

With November firmly cemented as the fashion month of the year, The Crossing is keen to showcase its offering.  “There is no doubt that the rebuild offered a unique opportunity to re-create the central city and we are really proud of The Crossing. This sponsorship shows Christchurch our ongoing commitment to the central city, and that The Crossing provides everything you need for your Christchurch Casino NZ Trotting Cup Day preparations from outfits, to make up and nails!” says Carter.
