queenstown new zealand’s charmer Story by Toni EaTTs Any seAson of the yeAr, any day of the week, any time of the day, Queenstown will charm all who visit. conference facilities to stunning natural beauty, Queenstown allows you to get work done and live it up. It’s a town that combines country casual with a cosmopolitan sophistication enhanced by two of New Zealand’s top ski and snowboard destinations only being a short drive away. Indeed, travelling to Queenstown is easy with weekly direct trans- tasman flights or you can come via Christchurch International Airport. And when you arrive, Queenstown has everything you need for the conference, meetings and incentives market, from exhilarating bungy jumping and jet boat rides to inspiring golf resorts, luxurious hotels, great wineries, cafes and restaurants. F rom snowy peaks offering great skiing to summer boating activities on Lake Wakatipu; from relaxing hot rock massages to hot nights on the dance floor; from state-of-the-art that’s the message Destination Queenstown has been aiming at Australian conference organisers and corporate buyers over the past year and the message appears to be getting through. Graham budd, until recently Destination Queenstown acting CEo, believes Queenstown is well placed to grow within the Australian business travel market sector. Mr budd’s belief is supported by researched undertaken by the regional Visitor Monitor (rVM) which shows Queenstown attracts a higher proportion of international business travellers than the New Zealand average. rVM is a joint initiative between the Ministry of tourism, tourism New Zealand and six of New Zealand’s largest regional tourism organisations and its figures show one third of all business travellers to Queenstown are international visitors.
