This year's summit will focus on the challenge of unlocking New Zealand's year-round visitor demand.

Our goal is to provide a forum that not only addresses industry issues but also provides relevant, useful tools to take away. We will keep you up to date as the programme is finalised and will be seeking your input into questions for our presenters.
