New Zealand’s luxury offerings on show at MEETINGS

Business event organisers looking for the five-star wow factor will find everything they need in the new Luxury Collection at MEETINGS 2014.

A new feature of the exhibition, the Luxury Collection will showcase the finest end of the New Zealand business events market with everything from boutique lodges to luxury yachts.

Confirmed exhibitors include Eagles Nest in the Bay of Islands, Huka Lodge, near Taupo, Peppers Carrington Resort in Northland, The Museum Art Hotel in Wellington, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, Matakauri Lodge, Touch of Spice, Simon Gault’s The Nourish Group of restaurants, and Pacific Jemm, a luxury Queenstown cruiser.

Director of Queenstown-based Touch of Spice Jacqui Spice, who is also a New Zealand Tourism Board member, says the addition of the Luxury Collection to MEETINGS aligns with the Tourism New Zealand premium strategy to attract more high-yield visitors to New Zealand and will give buyers an opportunity to learn more about what luxury New Zealand has to offer.

“We are very excited for Touch of Spice, curators of New Zealand's finest experiences to be included in the new luxury section at MEETINGS. The trends are showing that more and more people want to truly experience what New Zealand has to offer over and above the beds being slept in – they want to taste it, touch it, feel it and experience it. Which is exactly what we will show them,’’ says Ms Spice.

Huka Lodge, long recognised as one of New Zealand’s most aspirational retreats and one of the world’s top hotels is also joining the first Luxury Collection.

Maureen Bayley, Business Development Manager of Huka Retreats, says they are delighted to be part of the Luxury Collection from its inception.

"Huka Lodge is ideally suited to the Luxury Collection, with our discreet location and legendary service for corporate events, management retreats and private meetings to bespoke product launches," she says.

MEETINGS is being held this year at the Auckland ASB Showgrounds on June 18 and 19. Hosted buyer applications are now open at www.meetings.co.nz
