2019 12 11 West Coast to be showcased at TRENZ 2020

TRENZ 2020

New Zealand’s leading business-to-business travel and trade event, TRENZ, will take place in Christchurch during May 2020.

The West Coast contingent promoting our Untamed Natural Wilderness at the event will be bigger than ever. Fourteen operators have registered for TRENZ 2020, compared to seven in 2019.

West Coast operators attending along with DWC in 2020 are Shantytown Heritage Park, HeliServices New Zealand, Rain Forest Retreat, Maruia Hot Springs, Explore West Coast, Monteith’s Brewery, Wild South, Haast River Safaris, Fox Glacier Guiding, Go Wild Hokitika, Mountain Jade, Wilderness Lodges of New Zealand and West Coast Wildlife Centre.

DWC regional tourism manager Jim Little says, “With many international markets softening now is the time for the West Coast to be much more aggressive with trade marketing. We must allay fears of road closures and rebuild confidence in the West Coast proposition for all markets and their itineraries.”
