Registration is now open for the Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Annual Conference and AGM to be held in Queenstown from 29 to 31 October.
The conference will follow the theme ‘Inspiring New Thinking’, with a program of speakers, panels and workshops set to tackle topics such as incentive events, resilience, leadership, international trends and sustainability.
CINZ chief executive Sue Sullivan said Queenstown is an “inspiring” destination for this year’s conference.
“Our conference delegates will have a chance to take in the very best of Queenstown, with the main event happening at Skyline Queenstown, the welcome function at Gibbston Valley Winery, and our conference finale dinner at Walter Peak Station with a return trip across Lake Wakatipu on the Earnslaw steamer,” she said.
“We will be continuing the CINZ educational program, keeping our eyes up and looking here, Aotearoa New Zealand, and abroad for inspiration.
“Our international speakers are industry experts who will share their knowledge on how to design events with a ‘wow’, how to inspire delegates and create lasting memories, and the latest thinking on leadership and building resilience within an organisation.”
Tourism New Zealand will support the conference by bringing in international staff to share first-hand insights from key markets, as well as hosting international speaker Greg Bogue.
As keynote speaker, Greg Bogue will share his expertise and 30 years of experience designing and creating events that make a lasting impression.
As chief experience architect for Maritz Global Events, his focus is on improving the guest journey and overall experience in meetings, events and incentive travel programs to create greater impact for both organisations and their guests.
Meanwhile, Resilience Institute chief executive Brad Hook will use his research-based framework to give CINZ delegates practical skills and insights and into human resilience and wellbeing, both at a personal and organisation level.
