Tourism boost for Central North Island

Tourism boost for Central North Island

-NZ’s largest international tourism event to be held in region; new incoming Chair appointment-

Explore Central North Island has plenty to smile about with the announcement that TRENZ, New Zealand’s largest annual international tourism event, will host the 2015 conference in Rotorua.

The news comes as the tourism organisation, which collectively represents nine Central North Island regions, welcomes Rhys Arrowsmith as its incoming Chairman.

TRENZ 2015 will take place between 17-20 May at the Rotorua Energy Events Centre, and will focus on showcasing the very best of what New Zealand has to offer to domestic and international buyers, as well as drive future business.

Rhys Arrowsmith, Explore Central North Island incoming Chairman and Tourism Bay of Plenty General Manager, is delighted that Rotorua will host the next event.

“It’s an exciting time to be coming on board with Explore Central North Island as it has been a goal for the organisation to host TRENZ in Rotorua since it was last held there in 2008,” says Mr Arrowsmith.

“This year’s event attracted almost 300 international buyers and media, and the economic boost will be significant for the Central North Island with the influx of visitors who will be attending, staying and playing in one of New Zealand’s most popular tourism destinations.

“I’m very much looking forward to working collectively with the other Central North Island regions to produce an unforgettable event for 2015,” says Mr Arrowsmith.

Explore Central North Island represents the Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, Eastland, Hawke’s Bay, Ruapehu, Lake Taupo, Rotorua and Hamilton and Waikato.
