Bay of Plenty out and about at events

The team at Tourism Bay of Plenty have been busy actively promoting the region and its beautiful venues and suppliers at various trade shows and conferences recently with more events coming up.

Our travel trade team was joined by a dozen trade-ready tourism operators at the eXplore and TRENZ travel trade shows. These events provide an excellent opportunity to showcase the region’s attractions and tourism offerings with several new operators bringing many new activities, such as guided jet ski tours. These operators are excited to look after corporate clients wanting to do Business by the Beach, and try some more meaningful and immersive experiences. 
The business events team also recently attended the AuSAE Conference in Wellington, to connect with associations to help make planning their next conference easier.

On Wednesday 31 May, the Bay of Plenty is collaborating with Waikato, Rotorua and Southland to meet and update Business Event planners in Christchurch. Together they will showcase each region’s unique offerings to support conference and incentive events. 

Tourism Bay of Plenty will also have a presence at the upcoming MEETINGS Expo in Wellington on 21-22 June.
