New Zealand on show for international business event organisers
International business event organisers will be converging on Auckland next week for New Zealand’s biggest showcase of conference and incentive products, on 29 and 30 May at ASB Showgrounds.
CINZ MEETINGS, organised by Conventions and Incentives New Zealand, is the largest annual event for connecting influential domestic, Australian and international buyers with New Zealand’s key regions, meeting facilities, accommodation, off-site venues and activities.
CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan says New Zealand is moving up the ranks of global conference destinations and punching above its weight on the world stage, and interest from international buyers for MEETINGS reflects this.
“We are now number 12 in the Asia Pacific and number 46 in the world on the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) listing for 2018, up five places worldwide from 2017. We’re being talked about in the global arena, and it’s great to be bringing many of these of these influential decision-makers here to experience New Zealand for themselves,” she says.
MEETINGS 2019 features over 190 exhibitors including 20 new exhibitors, representing venues, theming companies, hotels, AV companies, regional bureaux, attractions and activities from 17 regions.
With the support of Air New Zealand, 90 buyers and media from Australia, and 100 from New Zealand will be attending. Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand are bringing 37 international buyers and media to MEETINGS from China, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Canada and the United States, plus a group of 14 association buyers who will be organising international conferences in New Zealand.
Day buyers can still register to attend MEETINGS next week, and make the most of the opportunity to meet all of New Zealand under one roof.
