In 2024, TRENZ is being held in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara Wellington for the first time in 2024. This will be a significant opportunity for the industry to showcase their products and services to high-quality international and New Zealand Buyers and influential international and New Zealand travel trade and tourism Media. The focus of the event is relationships and experiences, with numerous opportunities to do business, network, and showcase/experience products firsthand.
TRENZ Connect is an 'always on' platform for facilitating tourism trade relationships internationally. It is a digital marketplace for New Zealand travel trade, allowing connections and relationships to be developed and maintained and up to date trade information to be shared 24/7/365.
The COVID-19 pandemic showed us the value of digital platforms as a way for people to connect when they are unable to travel. While New Zealand borders were shut and in-person events were not going ahead, TRENZ Connect was developed to fill the gap. It was created in partnership with Tourism New Zealand and with funding from the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.
