Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) has opened registrations for next year’s MEETINGS to be held from 21 to 23 April in Auckland.
CINZ chief executive Sue Sullivan said MEETINGS generated a record $62 million of business signed by exhibitors on the show floor.
“Every year our exhibitors are delighted at the exposure they get to all the important players in the industry, the high quality of our pre-qualified hosted buyers and the unique opportunity MEETINGS gives them to write major business for the year, all in two days,” she said.
“Already we have huge interest for 2020 with exhibitors signing up now in anticipation of April’s event. Our Luxury Collection has again confirmed its status as New Zealand’s leading high-end showcase, and it is expected to sell out early.”
CINZ Australia manager Sharon Auld says hosted buyers can apply now to attend the 2020 show, with four weekend pre-famils available at Northland, Rotorua, Wellington and Christchurch.
“Our two post-famils include a signature two-day experience in Queenstown for 20 hosted buyers, and the Waikato region is returning with a very special, high-end post-MEETINGS programme for ANZAC weekend,” Auld said.
“Auckland’s annual pre-MEETINGS familiarisation day is always a must-attend and once again Auckland Convention Bureau will be pulling out all the stops to showcase the latest New Zealand’s biggest city on Tuesday 21 April.”
