New Zealand to feature at AIME 2018

The New Zealand story is set to come alive at AIME 2018 this month with a bold new stand in the premium zone, mixing digital innovation and distinctive cultural elements.

“As New Zealand’s largest city, with exciting new infrastructure and events planned, Auckland is really amping up its position on the world stage,”said Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Australia manager, Sharon Auld.

Ms Auld said New Zealand will have prime position at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME), the region’s leading exhibition for the business events industry in Melbourne on February 20 to 21.

CINZ and Tourism New Zealand are teaming up on the 100% Pure New Zealand stand with 11 partners from key regions and venues. They are joined by the country’s national carrier Air New Zealand, named 2018 Airline of the Year by for the fifth year in a row.

“Together we are making the most of this prime spot to create a real sense of our place and our people. It will be an engaging slice of Aotearoa New Zealand in Melbourne,” she said.

The collaborative approach will see the two main stand partners Auckland Convention Bureau and New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) expand their presence.

ChristchurchNZ Convention Bureau and the Christchurch Convention Centre are also partnering to showcase New Zealand’s newest city in the heart of the South Island, ahead of the convention centre opening in 2020.
