Showcasing and celebrating
the success of our Industry

Events update

Like most organisations, we’ve had to review our 2020 events programme including the Tourism Summit Aotearoa and the New Zealand Tourism Awards. While businesses are fighting to survive, it doesn’t feel appropriate to celebrate with an Awards ceremony this year, and members we’ve spoken to unanimously agree. Instead, we looked at gentler ways we can celebrate some achievements across the industry and bring our people together again.

We’re pleased to announce that in 2020, the Tourism Summit Aotearoa will be moved to November and held in Wellington. The Summit programme will include an interactive and future focussed approach and the day will finish with a dinner to celebrate achievements across the industry. We’re looking forward to the opportunity for the industry to get together again. More details will be announced very soon.

“We have a team across the world who work incredibly hard for our purpose of creating unforgettable holidays. To be recognised by industry colleagues in this manner was a fantastic way to celebrate the achievements of our staff.”
