Organised by Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA), the tradeshow will be held at ASB Showgrounds Auckland.

For the first time this year, all MEETINGS’ Hosted Buyers will have the opportunity to experience more of New Zealand with eight regions on offer for MEETINGS’ pre- and post-familiarisation programme.

“We will have as many buyers as possible in person, but we will also have opportunity for the rest of the world to connect with exhibitors in a digital format. Business events are years in the planning, so we must continue to keep our future visitors engaged and focused on bringing their event to New Zealand,” BEIA chief executive, Lisa Hopkins, said in a statement.

Hopkins added that MEETINGS 2021 will be critical for reigniting the industry and updating buyers on the latest venues and unique experiences across the country.

“Our industry has continued to stage a large number of successful business events in New Zealand since restrictions lifted, bringing a huge level of confidence back into the industry. Now we are setting our sights on the return of international business events to destinations around the country, with the positive economic and social benefits they bring,” Hopkins stated.

The following year, in 2022, MEETINGS will be hosted in Ōtautahi Christchurch at the city’s new convention centre, Te Pae Christchurch.
