Langham's Capital turnout

Tuesday, 14 March 2017 15:58

Strong, mutually-supportive relationships were key to the good turnout to The Langham Auckland’s annual soiree in Wellington last week, says hotel
More than than 140 guests attended the function at the New Zealand Academy of Arts.
Michael Shah, The Langham’s director of marketing and sales, says Wellington clients seem to look forward to the event.
‘I think this year there has been added interest, because people really supported us when we were considerate of how things were a little stressed in the Capital last year, after the earthquake.
‘The nice thing about Wellington is how all the sectors and industries, whether they are corporate, travel, government or MICE, all mix together and support each other,’ he adds.

Exceptional demand for Africa has resulted in the largest ever Africa Collection of itineraries produced by Adventure World, says the company’s head of sales, Matt Endycott.
‘Africa for us is one of the fasting growing product lines. We have seen exceptional growth out of New Zealand and Australia and our 2017 Africa Collection, totalling 140 pages, is the largest collection in our 36 year history as a company.’
Speaking in Wellington as part of this week's nationwide Adventure World National Roadshow, Endycott says popular new African itineraries include the Pioneer Safari, which offers ‘exceptional wildlife viewing’ in the famous Masai Mara and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.
Adventure World’s USA Collection is also breaking new ground, says Endycott. 'Our new USA Collection offers new options such as self-drive itineraries in the southern states, stays on cowboy ranches in Texas, a big focus on national parks, and tailor-made itineraries, along the Pacific Northwest for example through three states along the Pacific Coast Highway.'
Agents came out in Auckland and Wellington for the roadshow.
