BE Reconnected to restart New Zealand’s events industry

Auckland’s Aotea Centre will host BE Reconnected tomorrow marking a restart for New Zealand’s business events industry following the impact of the Covid pandemic.

Organised by Business Events Industry Aotearoa (formerly CINZ), BE Reconnected will be New Zealand’s only business events industry gathering this year.

“BE Reconnected has been designed to support the industry to reconnect with industry peers, and to discover new product, see how they can support regional centres in New Zealand, and find out what they have to offer,” said chief executive Lisa Hopkins.

“Over 270 business event organisers and decision makers from around New Zealand will be meeting face to face with over 120 members from across the regions.”

Australian buyers have also registered for the BE Reconnected programme and will connect online with members throughout the day.

“The focus is on the rebound and recovery of our sector,” Hopkins said. “For the foreseeable future, we will have to be flexible in our approach to how events are staged and managed, with a combination of in-person and hybrid, but importantly it is all about staying connected.”
