Kia Ora, 


Welcome to the CINZ Annual Conference 
and AGM, this year being held in Queenstown. Queenstown’s positioning tagline is “Feel The Inspiration”, and the scenery alone would be inspiration enough, let alone the energy of this remarkable town and its people. Our theme this year is “Inspiring New Thinking”, and we’re pleased to include content about the Incentive sector. The speakers are international experts who will share their knowledge on how to design events with a “wow”,  to inspire delegates and create lasting memories. Sustainability is another area requiring and inspiring new thinking.


There will be the traditional networking, catching up with the industry and seeing the 
sights of Queenstown. There are so many activities to try out – do take advantage of the special offers which Queenstown members are making available to delegates.


As with all Conferences, we know you come to learn, network and refresh yourself before you head back to your home town and workplace. 

You will hear what is on trend off shore, how incentives and events conferences are being designed,  how tourism products are being concepted, and the latest thinking on leadership and building resilience within an organisation. There will be the traditional presentations this year with a few changes and additions such as panels, workshops, and lots more. 


As we continue on our educational theme of "eyes up", looking beyond Aotearoa New Zealand to the world, Tourism New Zealand have supported us by hosting an international speaker, and bringing in some of their international staff who will also be available to chat with you.  


The CINZ team look forward to seeing you at the Skyline Queenstown, on  October 29th – 31st 2019.
