Business booming in New Zealand


Last year, New Zealand ranked 46th in the world as a conference destinatio­n, climbing five places since 2017, according to data from the Internatio­nal Congress and Convention Associatio­n (ICCA).

Events hosted in Christchur­ch alone pumped an estimated $15 million into the local economy between August 2018 and February 2019.

The island country is set to continue its rise as a leading business events destinatio­n, with the new Te Pae Christchur­ch Convention Centre scheduled to open in October this year.

The centre has already secured 50 events, which are expected to bring over 28,000 people and $30 million to the city.
