Australian conference and incentive organisers are being invited to apply for hosted buyer positions at Convene South, the exhibition that showcases the best of what New Zealand’s South Island has to offer business event planners.
Convene manager Allyssa Eastaugh says the decision to host more Australians than in the past comes at a time when Christchurch is getting back on its feet – not only as a gateway to the South Island but also as a conference and incentive destination in its own right.
Exhibitors encompass the whole of the island, with suppliers from Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury, Queenstown, West Coast, Wanaka and other regions all taking part.
“This is an opportunity for Australian business event organisers to see the South Island in a new light and really drill down to all their requirements in one day, under one roof,” said Eastaugh.
Convene South is being held at the Air Force Museum, Wigram on September 1. Hosted Australian buyers can chose one of three exciting pre-Convene familiarisation tours – two in the Christchurch and Canterbury region and one in Dunedin and Otago. There will also be a welcome function for delegates on August 31.
