For the past two years Aucklandâ€™s SKYCITY Convention Centre has hosted MEETINGS, but next year New Zealandâ€™s largest business tourism trade exhibition will shift to Aucklandâ€™s ASB Showgrounds.
â€œThe number of exhibitors wanting to display at MEETINGS grows each year and we just need more exhibition space if weâ€™re cater to that demand,â€Â says CINZ chief executive Alan Trotter.
MEETINGS event manager Jeanette Stanton says SKYCITY Convention Centre has been a fantastic venue for six MEETINGS events, since 2005.
â€œWeâ€™ve loved having MEETINGS there, but the move to the ASB Showgrounds will allow us to expand and do things a bit differently. Weâ€™re very excited about the possibilities it opens up and canâ€™t wait to welcome exhibitors and buyers back to an even bigger and better MEETINGS,â€Â Ms Stanton says.
MEETINGS 2014 will be held over two days, June 18 and 19.
