Queenstown prepares for Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand showcase and subsequent high investments in May 2011


Queenstown, New Zealand’s favorite tourist destination will host the country’s biggest international event next year.  The country’s tourism industry’s yearly international showcase, Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand (TRENZ) will be held for the first time in the quite resort town towards the end of May 2011.


Queenstown Lakes District Council Mayor Clive Geddes said that this host status was a significant move and an incredible opportunity that showed a real sign of confidence in the region. It is expected that this Queenstown based TRENZ will generate enormous spin-offs for the local Queenstown communities and economy in the form of increased investment opportunities.


‘Destination Queenstown’ Chief Executive, Tony Everitt added that this business meeting would mark a great achievement for the Southern Lakes region by getting the opportunity to hold an event of this magnitude. The Southern Lakes alliance is made of Destination Queenstown, Lake Wanaka Tourism and Destination Fiordland. The tourism business showcasing offers the city an opportunity to showcase itself to more than 200 international travel and tourism buyers, investors and the media in one hit.


The sum total of visitors to the resort during the event is expected to peg at about 600 just before the beginning of the New Zealand winter. As such, Destination Queenstown will work with the Tourism Industry Association (TIA) closely and the New Zealand tourism sector investors and operators for the event. Local Queenstown operators stand to benefit from the business meeting through being able to sell their products at home.


TRENZ has been vital in the country’s tourism sector as it enables New Zealand’s leading tourism investors and operators reach a huge market of potential international buyers with a face-to-face business meeting in one place, Queenstown for 2011. TRENZ is managed by TIA in association with a number of partners that include Tourism New Zealand, Air New Zealand, Qantas, Destination Queenstown and other industry supporters.


Investors in the tourism sector, Queenstown, stand to benefit from the expected increase in business in the already robust and thriving segment of the region’s economy. Queenstown, a spectacular city, is considered the most popular holiday destination in New Zealand for international visitors and offers and incredible range of investment opportunities in the tourism industry. It’s New Zealand’s adventure capital and ‘Destination Queenstown’ hopes this announcement of its host status for TRENZ will attract more investments into the city.
