Semi-FIT training for NZ operators

Event Date: 7 - 17 Nov 2011
Location: Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong

In November, Tourism New Zealand hosted Air New Zealand, China Southern Airlines and 18 trade operators for 100% Pure New Zealand China Semi-FIT training in Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

Organised by Tourism New Zealand, the event allows New Zealand operators to meet Chinese travel sellers and educate them about their tourism products, increasing their overall awareness and knowledge of New Zealand and what we have to offer as a visitor destination.

This year, 257 travel sellers attended the event including in Hong Kong among them 151 were product managers and 106 were frontliners. The training was also held in Hangzhou this year, a first for the city.

Operators attending the event have said they valued the opportunity to introduce and educate travel sellers face-to-face about their tourism products especially as China's potential as a visitor market continues to develop and offer enormous opportunities for New Zealand tourism.

The next Semi-FIT training in China will be held in October/November 2012. Details will be available here when published.
