Go with Tourism EP09: The Itinerary – Events

In this episode we discuss how events and tourism go hand-in-hand.

First, we speak to Lisa Hopkins, CEO of CINZ about global conventions and meetings and why we need to be attracting these high value events to New Zealand.

Then we chat to Lee Picken, Event Manager of Fieldays about the LARGEST agricultural event in the Southern Hemisphere and how they work with their exhibitors and tourism agencies to promote our amazing Kiwi event locally and to the world.

Our success story this week focuses on Elemental AKL, Auckland’s winter event, and how this was developed by ATEED to specifically generate tourism in the colder months and transform Auckland into a winter destination.

And of course we hear from Jason Biggs again as he explains why celebrating progress in the workplace is so important; and Kate Godfrey of Madision Recruitment on selecting your referees when you are applying for jobs.
