CINZ 2020

CINZ 2020 is the three-year strategy for Conventions & Incentives New Zealand.

“To be the association that best assists its members to drive growth and sustainability of the high-yielding business events sector.”

CINZ 2020 contains four core functions that combine established activities with greater focus in areas vital to the industry in the medium term.

CINZ 2020 aligns CINZ activity to Tourism 2025 and the developing priorities of the New Zealand conference and incentive sector.


"The CINZ goal for the New Zealand conference industry in 2020 is to be worth $750m."

In 2016, conferencing directly contributed $588m to the New Zealand economy: 6.5% growth in each of the four years to 2020 will see the industry worth $756m.

Strategic Performance

CINZ performance in delivering CINZ 2020 will be assessed by the CINZ Board.

As well as using their experience and expertise, Board members representing CINZ members will assess progress by assessing how the strategy meets the needs of the tier of members they represent.

Integration with the CINZ Annual Business Plan

To ensure this strategy is deployed, the actions from it are integrated with the CINZ Annual Business Plan, integrating these actions with business-as-usual activities to form a single plan of action.
