Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand 'TRENZ', the largest business meeting in New Zealand, closes its doors this evening on a successful four days of tourism trade in Christchurch.

The SkyCity TRENZ farewell dinner tonight is set to be a sensational night featuring leading New Zealand cuisine and wines. Guests will also enjoy exceptional entertainment which organisers, the Tourism Industry Association (TIA) New Zealand, say caps off one of the most successful TRENZ to date.

"The week has been about showcasing the finest New Zealand has to offer to our tourism industry's international buyers, guests, local delegates and media, both local and from overseas. There has been a lot of effort put into every facet of the event to ensure that it is a success in a business sense but also epitomises kiwi culture and hospitality - we are very pleased," says Fiona Luhrs, TIA Chief Executive.

"It has been an eventful few days; there were a number of exciting announcements from tourism operators, New Zealand tourism got the VIP attention today in a programme designed to highlight the importance of tourism to the economy and around $2 billion dollars worth of business was discussed," says Luhrs.

"We are pleased with the positive feedback we've received from international buyers and our New Zealand tourism sellers who say it has been a successful event for them. Tonight is a celebration of that success. We farewell our guests and look forward to next year's event which will be again held in Christchurch," says Luhrs.

This week over 33 thousand fifteen minute appointments took place between the 450 New Zealand tourism operators (sellers) and over 400 international buyers attending.
