TRENZ 2004 Goes South!

TRENZ 2004 Goes South!

The Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIANZ) is delighted to announce Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand - TRENZ 2004 will be held in Christchurch.

From 24-27 May 2004 the tourism industry’s international show case event will take place at a number of venues including the Westpac Centre.

In making this announcement TIANZ congratulates Christchurch and Canterbury Marketing for their successful bid.

“The move gives Christchurch and the South Island the opportunity to offer international buyers, and exhibitor delegates from all over the country a taste of the best Canterbury and South Island tourism and hospitality has to offer.” said John Moriarty, Chief Executive of TIANZ.

“I would also like to acknowledge the outstanding case made by other centres in both islands to hold this leading edge event.” said Mr Moriarty.

“TIANZ and Christchurch and Canterbury Marketing will now get down to business and prepare for one of the country’s largest trade shows and the key commercial event on the tourism calendar.”

Background In June this year over 1500 people attended TRENZ 2003 in Auckland. Around ten percent of New Zealanders are directly employed in tourism which is worth over $14.6 billion annually to the country. Nine percent of New Zealand’s Gross Domestic Product comes from tourism, and the industry accounts for 14.3% of exports. (source: Provisional Tourism Satellite Accounts 2000-2002).
