Tourism New Zealand’s dedicated Business Events team draws on New Zealand’s government, industry leaders, and renowned academics to attract business events that deliver impact to both international visitors and the local host community.

Business events deliver a range of advantages to New Zealand: high value and high profile international visitors, economic benefits for the tourism industry, global profile raising and recognition, and opportunities for knowledge exchange, professional networking and economic growth.

Our experienced team promotes New Zealand as a world-class destination for conferences and incentives. We provide expertise and practical support to make it easier for groups and organisations to hold business events in New Zealand.  

We work alongside local industry and academia to bid for international business events to be held in New Zealand. This includes managing the Conference Assistance Programme (CAP), which offers strategic marketing and funding assistance to organisations seeking to host a conference of more than 200 international delegates in New Zealand.
