As the official travel agency for NZ Rugby and the All Blacks, All Blacks Tours provides fans with exclusive access to the All Blacks environment including training sessions and events with players and management.

All Blacks Tours General Manager, David Caldwell, says the business has seen great growth since it began trading in December 2012, and this is expected to continue with a number of big rugby events on the calendar over the next three years.

“Kiwis are passionate supporters of the All Blacks, and following the success of the team in 2011 and 2015, many fans have wanted to experience an overseas tour first-hand.

“Alongside tours to Argentina, South Africa, Chicago and Europe, there are some exciting events on the horizon including the DHL NZ Lions Series 2017 and Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019.”

All Blacks Tours was required to submit comprehensive financial data and the executive team presented the business to the judging panel.
