We specialise in three areas of tourism business development


ASIA PREMIUM - Business development of premium Asian travel trade for world class New Zealand tourism companies

We visit different international markets regularly, up to three times per year per market. While in market we meet with up to 25 premium focused travel trade per location. Through the provision of information, education and timely service we have built relationships that have engendered trust. We support in-market travel trade with information that is beyond brand representation, we add value by providing New Zealand tourism industry insights, making relevant introductions and seeking third party support to meet mutually beneficial outcomes.

‘In April 2018 we led our first client sales mission to China. We returned to China with clients in Feb 2019 & June 2019. We are seeking expressions of interest for late 2019 and 2020. Your world class New Zealand tourism company will be a supplier of premium accommodation, aviation or activities. You will have a strong desire to grow awareness of your brand and conversion of sales within the premium travel trade channels of Asia’.


GOLF TOURISM - Business development of international golf tour operators for globally ranked New Zealand golf courses

Golf tourism in New Zealand has progressed incredibly quickly since its economic opportunity was acknowledged and the Golf Tourism Working Group established in April 2013. One month later we attended our first of many IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour Operator) Asia Golf Tourism Conventions. Relationships built at this annual event have led to in-market business development meetings with golf tour operators across Australasia, South-East Asia, China and the Middle East.
