Christchurch to host TRENZ in 2020

Christchurch will play host to the biggest event of the New Zealand tourism calendar when TRENZ returns to our city in 2020.

ChristchurchNZ Chief Executive Joanna Norris says this is a well-deserved endorsement for the future of tourism in our region.

“We are delighted to partner with Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) and bring TRENZ 2020 back to Christchurch,” Ms Norris says.

“The last time we hosted New Zealand’s national tourism showcase was back in 2006.

“Our city is more than ready to welcome the international tourism buyers and exhibitors back to the Christchurch and Canterbury region – we can’t wait to show off our exciting new city to the world.”

The event will bring together New Zealand’s leading providers of visitor accommodation, transport, activities to showcase their products to more than 350 international travel and tourism buyers from major and emerging visitor markets.

Ms Norris says this unique business opportunity will allow Christchurch to showcase our new city while helping to grow the country’s $10.3 billion export tourism industry.

“Christchurch enjoys playing host, showing off our innovative city and our region and ensuring visitors have a memorable experience,” she says.

“Christchurch is the perfect leaping off point to explore the beautiful Canterbury region where our beautiful mountains, lakes and picturesque towns provide backdrops to incredible experiences provided by our committed operators.”

“Promoting Christchurch and attracting visitors to our vibrant city is central to ChristchurchNZ’s purpose and we see great benefits in being part of this opportunity.”
