Join the ChristchurchNZ Convention Bureau

Key to the success of the ChristchurchNZ Convention Bureau is the broad, diverse and fabulous array of business partners we work with.

Our job is not only to profile Christchurch and Canterbury as a top destination for business events, but also to help our business partners leverage opportunities for securing new business.

Through this programme our business partners benefit from familiarisation trips for conference organisers and incentive travel planners and also get to participate in business event trade shows. They can also tap into our expertise and networks when bidding for large and complex conferences.

There are 3 tiers of business partnership levels and benefits (gold, silver and bronze). Business partner benefits include:

  • Involvement in bids and referrals
  • Familiarisations and site inspections
  • Invitations to special member-only networking events
  • Inclusion in newsletters to business events and conventions and incentive (C&I) database
  • Participation at trade exhibitions such as MEETINGS and Convene South
  • Access to research statistics.
