Ro­torua was the birth­place of tourism in New Zealand, with the Depart­ment of Tourist and Health Re­sorts es­tab­lished there in 1901

Kevin Bowler, Chief Ex­ceu­tive of Tourism New Zealand, be­lieves hav­ing the event return to Ro­torua in 2015 is a great de­ci­sion that will lead to an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence for buy­ers and ex­hibitors.

He said, “It’s worth re­mem­ber­ing that Ro­torua was the birth­place of tourism in New Zealand, with the Depart­ment of Tourist and Health Re­sorts es­tab­lished there in 1901. To­day, the re­gion re­mains in­trin­si­cally linked to our unique tourism of­fer­ing. With TRENZ in­cor­po­rat­ing lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties into the sched­ule for del­e­gates, they will have the op­por­tu­nity to gain a greater un­der­stand­ing of New Zealand’s unique his­tory, our Maori cul­ture, geo­ther­mal ar­eas and of course nearby Hob­biton. I’m sure this will en­hance buy­ers’ knowl­edge and en­thu­si­asm for the re­gion and New Zealand as a whole.”

Ro­torua Mayor Steve Chadwick said this is a mar­vel­lous op­por­tu­nity to show­case and host.
