May 4, 2017 Trade Events No Comments Email Email

Auckland will host hundreds of influential international tourism representatives next week to an afternoon of exciting activities, ranging from a face to face encounter with a shark to an afternoon of decadence at a local hotel.

“Almost 500 TRENZ delegates will take a break from their business meetings on Thursday afternoon, 11 May, to discover first-hand some of the world-class activities on offer in Auckland,” says Emily Byrne, Director of Events at Tourism Industry Aotearoa which manages TRENZ, the $35 billion tourism industry’s most important international trade show.

On in Auckland 9-12 May, TRENZ 2017 will be attended by 1200 delegates, including 377 international and New Zealand tourism and travel Buyers, representatives from around 300 of the country’s leading tourism operators and international and domestic media.

“Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development has put together a fantastic Activity Afternoon programme featuring almost 30 activities and attractions including adventure, eco-tourism, cultural and food and beverage experiences. It showcases why the Auckland region is one of New Zealand’s most popular visitor destinations,” says Mrs Byrne.

She says this time away from scheduled TRENZ meetings is also an opportunity for delegates to network informally, make new contacts and potentially identify new business opportunities.

ATEED Head of Tourism Jason Hill says Auckland is looking forward to giving Buyers, Sellers and Media attending TRENZ a first-hand experience of what the region offers, with an unforgettable programme of diverse activities and experiences lined up for their activity afternoon.

“Being the host region for TRENZ is a valuable opportunity and comes at a great time for our region, with Auckland experiencing huge growth in visitor numbers.

“Auckland benefits from the immediate economic impacts of having the people attending TRENZ staying in accommodation, eating in restaurants and experiencing some of Auckland’s tourism activities, all of which injects an estimated $2 million into the local economy.

“It also helps leave a lasting impression on the Buyers who visit and secures Auckland’s place on future itineraries,” he says.
