Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 13 August 2009

The New Zealand Automobile Association (NZAA) and Australian Motoring Services (AMS) representing each of the State/Territory based Australian Automobile Clubs, have combined resources to form a trans-Tasman tourism partnership.

NZAA and AMS have combined their respective tourism marketing, guide and web operations into a partnership that will trade in Australia under the name AAA Tourism and in New Zealand under the name AA Tourism, effectively becoming one of the South Pacific region’s leading tourism, publishing and media businesses.

A key component of the new partnership’s overall marketing strategy will be the publication of a range of tourist accommodation guides, maps and websites delivering targeted travel information to the 7.7 million members currently belonging to New Zealand and Australian motoring clubs.

AMS CEO Michael Reed said NZAA had played a key role in helping to revitalise New Zealand’s domestic tourism in recent years via the release of several highly innovative and penetrating marketing campaigns including the successful - 101 Must-Do’s for Kiwis.

NZAA’s current GM of AA Tourism Peter Blackwell has been confirmed as CEO of the new partnership.

The partnership will be governed by a partnership committee. This will include two Australian and two New Zealand representatives - Ian Stone, CEO of RAA, Michael Reed CEO of AMS, Brian Gibbons, CEO of NZAA and Peter Moxon GM NZAA Club Operations.

“With both countries representing each other’s biggest source of visitor arrivals, the establishment of this trans-Tasman tourism model has created a valuable business proposition for both Australian and New Zealand companies,” Mr Reed said.

“More than 5,000 New Zealand tourism businesses and their 10,000 plus Australian counterparts will now have direct promotional access to 7.7 million potential ‘local’ customer.

“This partnership confirms both NZAA and AAA as two of the most important players in the regional travel sector and represents a strong investment in the future of both countries’ tourism industries.”
