Exclusive by James Wilkinson in Auckland

Conventions and Incentives New Zealand’s (CINZ) CEO Alan Trotter says the industry has applauded the recent Heads of Agreement to build a NZD$402 million convention centre in Auckland.

Speaking exclusively to HM on camera in Auckland last week (May 31), Trotter says the 3500-capacity centre will be a popular talking point at Meetings 2013, CINZ’s annual trade show being held in Auckland in late June.

Trotter also spoke about the mooted convention centres in Christchurch and Queenstown and business expectations for the rest of the year.
