It was a highlight to welcome our Australian contingency of Hosted Buyers to MEETINGS 2021 during June.  Equally to the regions of Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown who hosted pre-and-post familiarisation programmes.

The Australian & New Zealand buyers embraced the opportunity and really wanted to be refreshed on the offerings, what is new and what is open. They also wanted to gain valuable insights, knowledge and contacts.     The testimonials highlight just how important it was for BEIA and the industry in hosting MEETINGS 2021:

MEETINGS 2021 was an outstanding success.  The organisation and delivery was incredibly professional.  The diversification of NZ is remarkable.  The natural beauty of this wonderland right on our doorstep is astonishing.   The availability of regular daily flights of around 3 hours from the East Coast of AU makes it a fantastic option and ideal for conference groups.  I believe NZ can work within any budget due to its diversity and can represent excellent value for money.  -      Wayne Taylor, Taylored Images 

Making the commitment to attend MEETINGS 2021 was so worth everything that had to happen in order for me to get there this year.   And I expect there were many curved balls for the MEETINGS 2021 team to contend with.  From my perspective though, everything was so smooth, professional, informative, fun and overall a first class event.   I made some wonderful connections.

MEETINGS is for every person working in Business Events.  It is a concentration of the best in the industry, ready to WOW the buyer and share warm Kiwi hospitality.   Our team always returns inspired and energised from every MEETINGS event.

Although at time of writing we currently have a pause on the TT bubble, opportunities for 2022 and beyond are being received.  New Zealand currently has the off-shore monopoly and we are seeing corporate/agency requests for programmes as boutique as 10 people through to 450 people.   Dual NZ destinations, over multiply years and requests for high-end product offerings is also part of the brief.
