Come on a second Great Adventure

Come on a second Great Adventure

Adventure and outdoor tourism operators are being invited to attend The Great Adventure 2014, taking place in Wellington on 19-20 June.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Great Adventure, planning is well underway for another event that will bring together the adventure and outdoor sector to share their experiences, and tackle the challenges of building a strong, unified and prosperous sector.

2014 will be a pivotal year for the sector, as the new auditing regime is implemented. Attendees will discuss issues facing the sector, as well as having opportunities to learn new ideas and skills with immediate practical use in their businesses.

The programme will begin with a networking function on the evening on Thursday 19 June, followed by a full day of presentations and workshops on Friday 20 June.

Here’s what delegates said about last year’s Great Adventure:

“I wrote 15 pages of notes and almost ran out of paper! It truly was highly valuable information for me. Best conference I have been to - I learnt something from every speaker/workshop.” Amanda Pearson, Auckland Adventure Jet

“I came away with practical ideas to put in place in our own business, some wonderful connections with other operators and organisations around New Zealand and a better understanding of the adventure regulations and the need for action in this space.” Juliet Gibbons, Wilderness Guides Marlborough Sounds

“Very relevant to our small business with an excellent outdoor safety bias.” Stewart Barclay, Adrift New Zealand

Programme details and registration for The Great Adventure 2014 will be available soon.
