Applications for the most important event in New Zealand’s business events calendar will close on 19 April. 

Produced in partnership with MEETINGS

Business Events Industry Aotearoa’s 28th annual MEETINGS event is set to showcase the best of New Zealand’s business events products and services at Rotorua’s Energy Events Centre on 19 – 20 June 2024, opening with a spectacular welcome event on 18 June at the Sir Howard Morrison Centre. 

BEIA Chief Executive, Lisa Hopkins says the excitement from international buyers is already being felt, with Rotorua’s unique gems set to be a big drawcard for MEETINGS’ guests.

“Much more than a trade show, MEETINGS is New Zealand’s must-attend event for conference, incentive and meeting organisers. We’re so excited to be in Rotorua – the birthplace of New Zealand tourism, and our cultural heartland. It’s the perfect time for all of us to come together in such a unique place and to celebrate Matariki – the Māori New Year,” she says. 

Fully-hosted buyers can book 26 appointments over two days from a choice of over 190 exhibiting organisations representing 34 speciality areas and 17 New Zealand regions. For New Zealand business event organisers, both one and two day hosted buyer options are available.

Hosted buyers receive complimentary transport to Rotorua courtesy of Air New Zealand and Johnston’s Coachlines, as well as accommodation at one of nine host hotels and tickets to three social events, including a special Matariki dinner on Wednesday 19 June, courtesy of RotoruaNZ to celebrate the Māori New Year.

MEETINGS has also 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 offering a not-to-be-missed destination famil on Tuesday 18 June, and hosted buyers can choose to join post-MEETINGS famils in the nearby regions of Waikato and Taupō.
