Mice Net : August 2008
new zealand the stage is set for Rotorua to become a truly international hub for business events. visitors and plenty more conference business. Already the powers that be are in negotiations across the ditch, hoping to bring in trans-Tasman services as early as May 2009. This will alleviate the need for Australian travellers connecting to Rotorua via Auckland or even Hamilton Airport. While Rotorua has seen good business from Australia in recent times, access is an issue. Anecdotal evidence says that Australian convention and incentive planners are looking forward to direct flights to Rotorua in 2009 to reduce the time their delegates spend travelling. Indeed, this is especially important with current figures that show the length of conventions and especially incentive-style business has reduced considerably in recent years. Conferences that were once five or six days in length have been shortened to three or four, meaning that if travel can be limited to a half day or less the result is considerably better for the group, the event planner, and perhaps more importantly, the destination as a whole. Our advice: watch this space for more updates for the rest of 2008 and in early 2009. RIGHT: Conferencing, Energy Events Centre. Photo courtesy of DRTM.
