New Zealand’s largest business tourism trade exhibition, CINZ MEETINGS 2018, will take place at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on May 30.
The event is owned and managed Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ), and will connect influential domestic, Australian and international buyers with key regions, meeting facilities, accommodation, off-site venues and activities.
This year’s edition will see over 195 exhibitors from 19 regions across New Zealand connect with more than 500 New Zealand, Australian and international buyers, as well as over 220 qualified hosted buyers.
As a bonus, 12 premium exhibitors will be joining the Luxury Collection to showcase bespoke experiences and accommodation on offer around the country.
“Our regions are really to the fore this year," said CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan. "Their strength of showing makes MEETINGS a must-attend event for 600 event organisers looking to cover all of New Zealand in just one or two days.
“New Zealand has such a broad range of venues and experiences, from the main cities to our rural and coastal towns, from the exciting purpose-built new infrastructure in Auckland and Christchurch, to the distinctive cultural and natural elements to be explored in our smaller regions.”
After the event, hosted buyers will be offered the opportunity to visit Middle Earth at the Hobbiton movie set in the Waikato region.
