TRENZ - Tourism Industry Rendezvous New Zealand

TRENZ is the New Zealand tourism industry's largest trade event. It is managed by the Tourism Industry Association of New Zealand (TIA), with the support of Tourism New Zealand and airline partners.

TRENZ 2015

Around 300 international travel sellers travel to New Zealand for the event and meet with New Zealand tourism operators for one-on-one appointments over three days. TRENZ is an excellent way to get to know the offshore travel trade, educate them about your product and build business relationships, as well as to network with hundreds of other operators and people from the New Zealand tourism industry.

You should participate in at least one TRENZ before considering travelling offshore with Tourism New Zealand. Identify the markets you are thinking of operating in and focus on obtaining appointments with buyers and agents from these markets.
