New virtual travel event to prepare New Zealand Specialists

Following Tourism New Zealand’s first Virtual Travel Expo in June ‘21, the team is launching Hui Kaihapai - a gathering and celebration of 100% Pure New Zealand Specialists, as they prepare to embrace travel in 2022. 


The exclusive invite-only virtual event will bring together certified New Zealand Specialists to connect with hand-picked, awarded operators and exhibitors.



Tourism New Zealand gathered invaluable feedback from the Australian market to create Hui Kaihapai, bringing added value and expertise via 1:1 prescheduled appointments with high-quality, vetted contributors - designed to guarantee connection in a competitive market.


“Australian’s had a taste of quarantine-free travel in 2021 that reignited their passion to explore new international experiences,” Andrew Waddel, General Manager Tourism New Zealand, Australia said. 


“Our recent research shows over one in three Australians will likely travel to New Zealand within six months of borders re-opening.”


“One in five of these travellers will look to use travel agent services more often, to book their trips to New Zealand. Hui Kaih?pai will equip travel sellers with the tools and information they need to sell New Zealand holidays.”


The event will also include three commendations recognising New Zealand Specialists, presented by Tourism New Zealand executives and distinguished guests. The primary award, The Aumangea (bravery and resilience), will recognise the Specialist who has Kept the New Zealand Dream Alive in 2021, alongside, The Hoa (friend or companion), and The ?konga (champion of le arning).

The Hui Kaihapai Virtual Travel Event will be hosted via EventsAIR onThursday 2nd December 2021 from 10:00am - 12:00pm AEDT.


This event is exclusively for Gold-certified Australia-based 100% Pure New Zealand Specialists, with limited spaces available for our 100% Pure New Zealand Specialists who are Silver and Bronze certified. Register to start the process of becoming a certified 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist HERE.
