Dunedin to host biggest TRENZ activity afternoon ever

Dunedin will host hundreds of influential international tourism marketers next month as they are treated to an afternoon of exciting activities, ranging from an off-road Otago Peninsula wildlife safari to a tour of the Speight’s Brewery and high tea at Larnach Castle.
“Over 600 TRENZ delegates will take a break from their business meetings on Wednesday afternoon, 9 May, to discover first-hand some of the world-class experiences on offer in Dunedin,” says Chris Roberts, Chief Executive of Tourism Industry Aotearoa, which organises and manages TRENZ, the $36 billion tourism industry’s most important international trade show.

On in Dunedin 7-10 May, TRENZ 2018 will be attended by approximately 1500 delegates, including 387 international and New Zealand tourism and travel buyers, representatives from around 320 of the country’s leading tourism operators and international and domestic media.

“Enterprise Dunedin has put together a fantastic Activity Afternoon programme featuring 22 activities and attractions including adventure, eco-tourism, cultural, and food and beverage experiences. It showcases why the Otago region is one of New Zealand’s most popular visitor destinations, and will be the best attended TRENZ activity afternoon yet,” says Mr Roberts.
He says this time away from scheduled TRENZ meetings is also an opportunity for delegates to network informally, make new contacts and potentially identify new business opportunities.

TRENZ is the biggest trade show on in Dunedin in 2018, says John Christie, Director of Enterprise Dunedin.

“TRENZ represents an opportunity to showcase Dunedin and its many excellent tourism products to influential decision makers and reinforce our reputation as a distinctive travel destination.

“Ultimately, the business and relationships Dunedin builds during TRENZ will return direct economic benefits to our local tourism and hospitality industry.”
