Hosted buyer applications open for 20th CINZ Meetings

Hosted buyer applications open for 20th CINZ MEETINGS

Exciting connections are on the cards for the 20th MEETINGS exhibition run by Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) in Auckland this June.

CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan says hosted buyers will receive invitations this week, and applications are now open online at meetings.co.nz.

“CINZ MEETINGS 2016 will be a stellar anniversary event and our buyers can look forward to full hosting including travel, accommodation and registration for the event on15 and 16 June, plus famil opportunities before the show gets underway,” she says.

“These buyers are the people responsible for organising, planning, recommending, researching and influencing decisions about conference destinations and incentive travel, and we want to wow them with what New Zealand has to offer.

“Along with our legendary social hosting, the highlight of CINZ MEETINGS is focused, face-to-face appointments. Pre-scheduled appointments mean buyers can meet a choice of 200 exhibitors from 19 regions of New Zealand, all under one roof with 35 appointments across two days.”

Up to 100 hosted buyers from Australia will also have the opportunity to join one of eight regional familiarisation tours around New Zealand the weekend before MEETINGS, and a hosted Auckland familiarisation day experience on 14 June.

Tourism New Zealand and Air New Zealand are bringing influential international buyers and media to MEETINGS from North America, China, Japan, India and South East Asia.

More than 300 day buyers are also anticipated over the two days of MEETINGS, as well as 100 New Zealand event organisers who will be hosted in Auckland for two days.

MEETINGS’ appointment scheduling system uses the latest online technology for fast and efficient appointment planning. Buyers can select exhibitors they most want to meet with, making the best use of the time.

“Buyers tell us they enjoy the atmosphere of our appointment programme, with five minute breaks between appointments plus morning and afternoon tea breaks, all day coffee and tea, and exceptional networking and familiarisation events,” Sue Sullivan says.

Final applications for exhibitor bookings close on 28 March, and hosted buyer applications close on 18 April.

CINZ MEETINGS’ pre-scheduled appointment requests will take place during May, and the online diary will commence on 31 May with the final appointment diary available to view on 10 June.
