The trip took place after MEETINGS 2014, a two-day trade exhibition that is aimed to promote the country’s business tourism and events industry. New Zealand currently already hosts a number of Indian corporate incentive groups which range in size from 50 – 400 guests.


After the event, Neha Bhola, Country Manager – India, Tourism New Zealand, took the delegates across the country on a fun, adventurous and luxurious journey. The trip covered the regions of Queenstown, Wanaka, Terrace Down and Christchurch.

The delegates also had the chance to admire the beauty of New Zealand’s landscapes through a panoramic helicopter flight and enjoyed the serene tranquillity of Christchurch and Canterbury in a guided bus and tram tour.


The participating delegates for the trip, chosen by Tourism New Zealand, included industry leaders from Thomas Cook (India) Ltd., Kuoni Travel India Pvt. Ltd, Cox & Kings Ltd., Corporate Flyers Pvt. Ltd., and TUI India.
