We have come a long way over the last year, and have subsequently enjoyed positive ongoing growth which has seen us sign not only the prestigious Accor and Millennium groups of hotel brands, but also a number of high level Memorandums of Understanding with key industry associations. 2006 has also seen us tasked with the development and creation of New Zealand tourism’s new environmental accreditation”.
