New Zealand kicked off the festive season in Kiwi style at this week’s Professional Conference Organisers’ Association (PCOA) Conference in Brisbane.

“We have a promising year ahead, with exceptional interest in all our unique New Zealand wide regional offerings,” Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Australia manager Sharon Auld says.

A highlight on day one of the PCOA Conference was Tourism New Zealand’s hosted dinner. Guests were surprised by a stunning, custom-designed table in the shape of New Zealand featuring a light-projected map.

Healthy juices, and a unique treat of Kiwitinis were being dished out on the 100% Pure New Zealand stand, along with the popular New Zealand wines and cheeses.

Maori culture made an appearance too, with an impromptu poi dancing demonstration from Adam Taylor-Eruera of Auckland Museum Tamaki Paenga Hira and Angela Beardsmore from Nelson Convention Bureau.

The CINZ team launched MEETINGS 2017 this week. Conference organisers are invited to apply to be hosted buyers before 16 December to win a case of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc delivered before Christmas. MEETINGS is being held on 31 May and 1 June in Auckland, and is New Zealand’s premier tradeshow for the business events industry.
