City targets conferences

01 December 2014

The Dunedin City Council is eyeing a potentially lucrative collaboration with Tourism New Zealand that could help secure a bigger slice of the international conference market.

The council's new agency, Enterprise Dunedin, is working with Tourism New Zealand (TNZ) to establish an ''Advocates'' programme in Dunedin.

The programme would bring together up to 30 of the city's key academics and business leaders to act as ambassadors and help attract international conferences to Dunedin.

Enterprise Dunedin business events tourism adviser Bree Jones told yesterday's DCC economic development committee meeting a similar programme was already being rolled out in Auckland.
