Hospitality NZ and Motel Association amalgamation

The Hospitality New Zealand and Motel Association amalgamation is official

The amalgamation between Hospitality New Zealand and the Motel Association of New Zealand has now been formalised with the signing of the contract, late last week in Nelson, at Hospitality New Zealand’s annual conference.

“After 6 months of really positive talks and working through the process to ensure we benefit all members across the entire industry, we are very pleased to have reached this moment” says National President of Hospitality New Zealand Adam Cunningham.

The two associations’ boards are excited about what the future now holds. The combined current membership is in excess of 3300 members spread across New Zealand, combining all parts of the hospitality sector – including motels, hotels, cafes, bars, restaurants and retail beverages.

“This is also an opportunity to really support the accommodation sector with the launch of the Accommodation NZ brand within Hospitality New Zealand” says Peter Nash, National President of MANZ and soon to be chair of the advisory council set up to help develop the future of the Accommodation NZ brand.

“It’s about helping our current members get more support, resources, supply partnerships and a united voice both locally and at a national level” says Mr Cunningham. “The future is very exciting and we look forward to the coming months whilst we operationalise this fantastic opportunity.”
