Tourism New Zealand is hitting the road this September on a UK regional roadshow.
Joined by Kiwi partners the team will travel across the country hosting agent events in, Birmingham, London and Newcastle-upon-Tyne / Gateshead.
Agents will receive training and updates from eight of New Zealand nine main regions, from Northland down to Southland.
Ten New Zealand suppliers will also be participating in the roadshow including national carrier, Air New Zealand and operators such as Hobbiton Movie Set and Real Journeys. With such a strong contingent of regions and operators, agents will benefit from first-hand information on the various regions and experiences.
There will be three events in total with the first taking place in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne/Gateshead on 5 September 2017.
At each event there will be the opportunity to connect with the regions and product suppliers and learn of the latest developments over a glass of New Zealand wine. This includes an update on the tourism board’s new 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist Programme which is now more accessible to agents with a new tier system, improved user experience and agent listings on newzealand.com.
To celebrate Tourism New Zealand will give away a pair of return flights to New Zealand at every event courtesy of Air New Zealand along with some ground support.
