A Taste of New Zealand – Embassy of New Zealand, Brussels, May 26, 2015

Tourism New Zealand and partners, from left to right: Melanie Brown – The New Zealand Cellar, Rob McIntyre – Christchurch Convention & Exhibition Centre, Leonie Ashford – Tourism New Zealand, Rebecca Nelson – Auckland Convention Bureau and Jan Tonkin – The Conference Company.

New Zealand delegation is making the best out of their long travel to IMEX in Frankfurt! Following the tradeshow and equipped with obviously endless energy, the group continued to Brussels to meet with association event planners and discuss bringing their conferences to this magic destination.

The presentation was as original as the country and the people living there – different conference products and venues were entertainingly matched with the regions producing some of the greatest wines New Zealand has to offer.

Leonie Ashford of Tourism New Zealand Business Events and Melanie Brown of The New Zealand Cellar told some great stories of the congress destinations and the wines, embedded in a menu of New Zealand specialities prepared by the chef of the embassy.

We want to thank all our guests from various associations for joining – what we all thought was – a very special and enjoyable presentation of New Zealand Business Events and their partners! Please enjoy the selection of pictures of the event and share a comment, it would be much appreciated!

Once you are ready to plan your event in New Zealand please get in touch with our team – we will be happy to liaise with our New Zealand colleagues and to support you!
