Hosted buyers receive complimentary transport to Rotorua courtesy of Air New Zealand and Johnston’s Coachlines, as well as accommodation at one of eight host hotels and tickets to social events. They can also look forward to a welcome event on June 18, at the Sir Howard Morrison Centre, as well as a special Matariki dinner on June 19, courtesy of RotoruaNZ.

MEETINGS has partnered with Hobbiton Movie Set Tours to offer pre- and post-visits where buyers can experience the brand-new Bagshot Row development. Host city Rotorua is also offering a destination fam on June 18, and hosted buyers can choose to join post-MEETINGS fams in the nearby regions of Waikato and Taupō.

For New Zealand business event organisers, both one- and two-day hosted buyer options are available. This year, day buyer registrations are opening in mid-February to ensure day buyers have plenty of time to plan their trip to Rotorua.

Complimentary shuttle buses will run from Rotorua Airport to the venue for key inbound and outbound flights, and complimentary return coach transport will be available each day from Auckland to Rotorua courtesy of Johnston’s Coachlines.

This year’s programme will see additional time for buyers to explore the showfloor during appointment-free periods, to enable greater networking and interaction with exhibitors.

Day buyers can add extra options to their registrations to enhance the value of their attendance. These include a speaker programme on June 19 and a range of educational sessions during lunch on June 20.
