What People Say About Us…
Dunedin Business Events
This is the second year I have engaged Tourism Marketing Services to conduct MICE.box training for our operators. Each year they have adapted their programme to focus on key areas our region needed to work on and their interactive and hands-on approach to the workshops ensured the participants really walked away with a sense of achievement and useable techniques to apply to their roles. I have already seen a notable difference in the level of understanding of the industry and a growing confidence in their approach to potential clients.
The response we have had regarding the training has been excellent and assures us we are on the right track with providing our operators the tools they need to succeed in the C&I industry. The TMS team is the perfect blend of professional, knowledgeable yet approachable and we will most definitely have them back to Dunedin again.

With the 21st AIME now finished, I would like to extend my sincere thanks on behalf of AIME and the MCB on you and your company’s assistance and support of AIME. Your partnership is very important to us and we hope you feel the same in return, and find it beneficial and worthwhile.
Numerous exhibitors and attendees defined AIME as a ‘must-do show’ with positive feedback on the quality of business that took place, and the importance of face to face meetings. We received positive feedback about the organisation of the event, which is a testament to how important your contribution to AIME was.
We know that creating an event like AIME would not be possible without your help, so on behalf of the whole team, our heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

We were thrilled with the responses from the TMS workshop.
Everyone has definitely approached their roles with a new level of vigour and understanding of the greater MICE market and how important their roles are to the success of our business.
It has been wonderful working with TMS – your combined expertise and professionalism blend perfectly with the course content. Thank you and looking forward to working with you again.

Conventions & Incentives New Zealand
Conventions & Incentives New Zealand has had the pleasure of working with the team from Tourism Marketing Solutions for the past few years. We have contracted them to assist us in sourcing qualified buyers for our annual tradeshow – MEETINGS. The MEETINGS event has a reputation of delivering excellent buyers and the TMS team have certainly assisted with that process. They have a trustworthy and qualified domestic database of buyers and their team are all very experienced within the C & I industry. The team understand the objectives of both exhibitors and buyers and this results in us attracting buyers who are right for our show. The team appear to have excellent, long standing relationships with many buyers and an in depth understanding of their needs. Their service and approach is always professional and warm which we value and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services at any time.
I have used the services of Tourism Marketing Solutions for the last three years. My role as Director of Business Development for Distinction Hotels had many starting out challenges, particularly with inherited reputations in the market place of poor product or service which had been benchmarked by the previous owners of our then take-over hotel properties. TMS have enabled me the opportunities to gain a head start over our direct competition. TMS have a very ethical approach in delivering the most up to date market research with their Accelerate programme. It is important to know that the ongoing benefits of the TMS Accelerate programme are still materialising but requires active follow up from the initial TMS work.

Grand Mercure Hotel and Resort
We have worked with Tourism Marketing Solutions over the past four years during this time they have represented our property through trade show, sales calls and targeted marketing campaigns.
We have found them to be highly professional and have chosen to use them over the past years as they have a proven record along with strong established relationships throughout the industry.
TMS have produced significant business and leads over the past years for the property, I would have no hesitation is recommending them.
