Rotorua Night Market puts it on for TRENZ

Rotorua Night Market puts it on for TRENZ
Rotorua – 11 May 2016

With 1000 influential tourism delegates in Rotorua this week for TRENZ the Rotorua Night Market is pulling out all the stops to provide visitors with a memorable experience.

“The i-Site is putting on a Kiwi barbeque to celebrate the TRENZ delegates being in town,” says Rotorua i-Site Operations Manager Kyle Kydd. “We’ve also invited a few of Rotorua’s iconic tourism operators like OGO, Rotorua Duck Tours and NZ Riverjet down to showcase their products, while the Agrodome will be entertaining the crowd with one of their world-famous performances.”

As the farm to the table movement has grown around the globe so too has the Rotorua Night Market. Offering patrons everything from Kiwi kai and fresh produce to ethnic offerings from around the globe the Thursday market acts as a beacon to visitors to the region and locals alike.

Destination Rotorua Trade Manager Patrick Dault said that inviting TRENZ delegates to the market as an optional activity was a great way to give the international buyers an insight into the real Rotorua and meet our local community.

“Part of Destination Rotorua’s strategy is to tempt visitors to stay here longer and the Thursday Night Market is yet another reason why people may look to include an extra night in their Rotorua itineraries,” said Mr Dault.

The Rotorua Night Market has grown to become an integral part of the Rotorua visitor offering and a place where locals mingle with travelers on a weekly basis.

“Whether you live here or have just arrived in town, the night market has become the go-to place on a Thursday night,” says Rotorua Lakes Council inner city portfolio lead Cr Karen Hunt. “It’s just humming and has made such a positive difference to the feel of the inner city. It’s been so successful that we recently had to double the size of it.”

TRENZ brings New Zealand tourism operators (exhibitors) together with targeted international travel and tourism buyers and media from New Zealand’s key established and emerging tourism markets. Hosted by Destination Rotorua, TRENZ 2016 is being held at the Rotorua Energy Events Centre, 10-13 May 2016.

The Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) manages TRENZ on behalf of the Tourism Industry New Zealand Trust. TRENZ is supported by Tourism New Zealand, Air New Zealand and other industry partners.

All TRENZ delegates have been invited to visit the Rotorua Night Market as an optional TRENZ activity.
