High-value business events take centre stage in Auckland

New Zealand’s high-value business events industry will be centre stage this week when the 20th CINZ MEETINGS 2016 opens in Auckland tomorrow.

The two-day exhibition and networking event showcases 19 regions and over 190 exhibitors to 500 conference, event and incentive organisers who together hold over 6,000 meetings on 15 and 16 June at ASB Showgrounds.

Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Chief Executive Sue Sullivan says the business events industry has come of age globally, and New Zealand is well positioned as a world-class conference, incentive and event destination.

“Internationally our industry has firmly placed itself at the centre of high-value tourism, as one of the key drivers of the sector’s development. It is recognised as an important generator of income, employment, investment and knowledge-sharing,” she says.

“CINZ MEETINGS is now in its 20th year and it is the show where event organisers come to discover what sets New Zealand apart and what unique options each of our regions offer.

“Our exhibitors make up New Zealand’s diverse and dynamic business events sector and include specialists in AV technology and entertainment, through to luxury incentive products, major hotel groups, convention venues, and our national carrier Air New Zealand,” she says.

The Luxury Collection returns to CINZ MEETINGS for its third year with a new booth layout to showcase New Zealand’s top end incentive products, venues and services.

“In such a vibrant and fast-moving industry CINZ provides a forum where we can do business for New Zealand, share the most relevant industry information and foster industry relationships in a highly creative atmosphere,” she says.

Air New Zealand is principal sponsor of MEETINGS 2016, and major sponsors are ASB Showgrounds, Auckland Convention Bureau, Peek Exhibition and Centium Software
