Did you know that Auckland, New Zealand was named the top meetings and conference destination in Australasia at the 2017 World Travel Awards? In addition to this, the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) is currently under construction and will be open for business in 2020. Once open, it will be the largest purpose built convention centre in New Zealand with the ability to deliver events from 40 to 4000 people. It’s exciting times for our city and country when it comes to Business Events. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you at IMEX to discuss how we can partner together to bring your conference to Auckland, New Zealand. If you would like to book an appointment via the IMEX portal you can do so here. I look forward to connecting at IMEX Frankfurt.

About Prue Daly:
With over 20 years’ experience, Prue started her career with a Hospitality Certificate from high school whilst working as a casual kitchen hand at a small venue in Melbourne. Prue studied at Victoria University, gaining a Bachelor of Business (Hospitality and Marketing) and winning a coveted training placement with leading hotel group Accor. This placement led a career with Accor where she worked for several years in various business development and sales management roles.
Over the next decade, Prue broadened her experience with other leading companies in the events and hotel industry including the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), which she joined in 2009, holding the positions of Assistant Director of Sales and Senior Manager Customer Experience positions. During her 7 years at MCEC she was awarded a number of industry accolades, including Meetings and Events Australia’s National Business Development Person of the Year.
In October 2016, Prue made the move “across the ditch” to join the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) team as Director of Sales. Her key responsibilities currently include the development and implementation of sales and business development activities; recruiting a new team of sales professionals; maintaining strong relationships with association, government and corporate clients; and strengthening the strategic partnerships with Auckland Convention Bureau and Tourism New Zealand to ensure the success of large-scale international bidding and the growth of the business events sector for New Zealand.
