CINZ MEETINGS 2019 promises a record year for exhibitors and buyers
New Zealand’s only national business events exhibition, CINZ MEETINGS is this year looking to present a wider range of exhibitors, more international and domestic buyers and more networking opportunities.
Held in host city Auckland from 28th to 30th May, MEETINGS continues to be the focal point of the year for the New Zealand business events industry. Staged annually by Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ), the show combines opportunities to discover regions, network and sign business across two days.
CINZ Chief Executive, Sue Sullivan says this year over 190 exhibitors from 20 regions, including 14 in the Luxury Collection, will be at ASB Showgrounds to showcase the experiences, venues and accommodation on offer around the country.
Sullivan advises “MEETINGS connects highly qualified meetings and incentive professionals looking to plan programmes in New Zealand, with suppliers who know their fields and their regions inside out. Hotels, resorts, convention bureaux, caterers, entertainers, speakers, styling and production experts are all part of this diverse mix.
“With valued support from principal sponsor, Air New Zealand and our partner hotels we are able to bring these qualified buyers from all over New Zealand, Australia and the world to meet in Auckland.
“Our hosted buyer places are always in high demand and this year key conference and event organisers have been signing up early. We take care of all accommodation, travel and transfers to ensure our buyers can get on with business, and make valuable new connections.”
Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand are bringing over 30 international hosted buyers and media from the United States, Canada, China, and Asia including Japan and Korea to MEETINGS, and giving them the opportunity to explore regional New Zealand.
Sullivan adds “our message to international convention and incentive organisers is that travelling here is not only a bucket-list experience, it is also extremely cost-effective – and not as far as you think. New Zealand is just an overnight sleep from the Americas, China and Asia-Pacific regions, and just three hours from Australia’s eastern centres.”
CINZ MEETINGS 2019 includes a pre-touring programme with places for 52 Australian hosted buyers to five regional destinations.
Northland, Rotorua, Wellington and Queenstown prior to MEETINGS and a new signature event, a special post-MEETINGS famil to Christchurch.
Applications for the CINZ MEETINGS 2019 hosted buyer programme close on 29th March with event organisers able to apply now on the MEETINGS website.
