Wellington Tourism launches Expanded Meetings and Incentives Planner

Travel News Asia Thursday, 13 April 2006

Positively Wellington Tourism has launched an expanded Meetings and Incentives Planner as part of an ongoing two-year marketing drive to increase Australian visitor numbers by 35% by the end of 2007.

The depth of Wellingtons culture and events is sure to surprise, especially the variety and wide appeal of what is on offer from food and wine festivals, through to world-class operas, major art exhibitions, tri-nations rugby tournaments, international festivals and ballet, said Martin Boland, Convention Bureau Sales Manager for Positively Wellington Tourism.

In addition, in the next two years, well see the results of increased investment in tourism infrastructure, with the opening of a number of brand new hotels and venues, and the extensive refurbishment of several existing properties.

The latest planner is designed as a definitive guide to Wellingtons venues, accommodation and key attractions.

New features include:

- a selection of dining options (noting those with private function facilities or dining rooms catering for conference groups),
- sample itineraries for visiting groups, and
- an extensive activity list ranging from high octane challenges to the relaxing and opulent.

The launch coincides with a week-long roadshow in Australia last week by a team of representatives from key Wellington-based venues, hotels and attractions.

Wellington is a short hop across the Tasman, is served by more than 50 weekly flights from Australia, Mr Boland said. New Zealands capital city also continues to expand its accommodation inventory and meeting venues, so we are confident the city offers great value to Australian MICE organisers, he said.

And with its vast and growing range of range of activities, from fine wining and dining to the performing arts, cultural activities and sightseeing options, it is clear why we are intensifying our marketing activities and collateral throughout Australia.
