NZ embraces PCOA 2016 themes

A record 18 exhibitors will represent New Zealand at the 2016 PCOA Conference in Brisbane this month.
Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Australia manager Sharon Auld says the New Zealand team is set to embrace and demonstrate the conference themes of connect, collaborate, differentiate.
The conference theme will come to life in presentations from the three New Zealand speakers in the programme - transformation leader Bruce Cotterill, Air New Zealand’s Jenni Martin and New Zealand International Convention Centre’s Callum Mallett. During the conference breaks, the speakers will also be on hand to chat personally with delegates.

Auld says PCOs will be welcomed with open arms, and receive a true sense of New Zealand’s unique and genuine culture.
'New Zealanders value the opportunity to connect with people on a deep level, and we will be demonstrating how Manaakitanga - Kiwi hospitality - is integrated into every aspect of business and social life.'
The Kiwi hospitality will start on Monday 28 November with fresh juices on the 100% Pure New Zealand stand. PCO delegates will be invited to enjoy a special treat of New Zealand Cloudy Bay wines, New Zealand craft beer and the South Island’s famous Whitestone cheese for lunch on Tuesday 29 November. Air New Zealand’s creative team are sharing their Kiwitini recipe too, which will also be available for delegates to sample on the stand.
CINZ is launching MEETINGS early this year, in time for the PCO Conference. Applications to be a CINZ MEETINGS 2017 hosted buyer will be accepted from 27 November, and those applying before 16 December will go in the draw to win a case of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc - delivered before Christmas.
