Showcase New Zealand - seeking industry speakers

Travel sellers in the USA love hearing about New Zealand from the source. We are putting together a series of online presentations to North American based agents and sellers on a range of topics and we need industry help to showcase New Zealand.

Additional air services and new routes from the US are making travel to New Zealand easier than ever before. Nearly 190,000 American holiday makers made their way here in 2016. The US is the third largest holiday arrivals market and growing at a steady rate so there’s no better time to educate US agents and sellers about New Zealand.

“Tourism New Zealand has been running presentations like this in the North America market for over 10 years. We’ve had some great feedback from attendees who say the information helps them promote New Zealand and that they find value in being able to directly ask industry questions,” says Bjoern Spreitzer General Manager, Americas and Europe.

 Past presenters include regional tourism organisations, national tourism providers and tourism marketing representation companies.

 The presentations will take place over 2017 and be webinar based so you can take part from your home or office. We will look after the technology side of things, we just need New Zealand based industry who are keen to take part. A list of topics and dates are listed below.
