Meetings to help early recovery

Meetings to help early recovery

Business events (conferences, incentives and meetings) will be an important and probably early part of New Zealand’s tourism revival, attendees at Wednesday's Kickstaring The Tourism Sector Together webinar heard.

Stephen England-Hall, Tourism New Zealand’s chief executive, said business events, and events in general, provided plenty of opportunity in the domestic sector ‘as much as’ international. ‘Business events move reasonable volumes of high value people and we can do it in a more controlled way. It is an important part of our recovery strategy.’

The webinar attracted a 2000-strong audience and covered various subjects related to what tourism and travel may look like post the Covid-19 crisis.
