INSPIRATION

Six super reasons your next incentive should be in New Zealand

Dramatic landscapes and lively cities offer some of the world’s most awe-inspiring experiences to reward and inspire high performing employees

New Zealand is the ultimate bucket list destination. Its dramatic landscapes and lively cities offer some of the world’s most awe-inspiring experiences to reward and inspire high performing employees. These additional factors make a compelling business case to choose New Zealand for your next event.

  1. You’re in safe hands
    Be reassured by choosing a destination for your next major event that is safe, secure, and stable. New Zealand is home to two of the world’s most liveable cities and has current top 10 rankings for peacefulness, happiness, corruption transparency, safety, and security. It has also been recognised internationally for having one of the world’s best responses to the Covid-19 pandemic.
     
  2. Your event will be both memorable and meaningful
    Integrating values from the indigenous Māori culture can help an organisation meet its objectives, reinforcing values including teamwork and loyalty. The Māori value of Manaakitanga is behind New Zealand’s reputation for friendly hospitality. At its heart, it refers to the need for building reciprocal respect between different people, groups, and cultures; essential factors for a great incentive and a great workplace.

     
  3. You can pack a lot into your programme
    In New Zealand everything is close. Inspirational experiences are never far away, with a wide variety of activities and landscapes near major centres. From cosmopolitan Auckland, with its vineyards and island-strewn harbour, it’s a short drive to the mud pools and geysers of cultural heartland Rotorua; or a short flight to the pristine lakes and snow-capped mountains of adventure capital Queenstown.

     
  4. There’s something to suit everyone
    New Zealand is known for being a thrill-seekers paradise. Adrenaline junkies can take part in an array of action-packed activities, from bungy jumping to heli-skiing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, or off-road 4WD safaris. Those who prefer a more sedate pace can tee off at a world-class golf course, sample award-winning wines in picturesque vineyards, soak in natural hot springs, go whale watching, or simply enjoy unforgettable views from a luxury launch or scenic flight.
     
  5. Feeling good and doing good
    New Zealand’s beautiful natural surroundings offer the perfect backdrop to relax and recharge – and excellent opportunities to give back and ensure it stays that way. Tiaki is an initiative to help all travellers to New Zealand care for people, place, and culture, for now and for future generations. Event organisers and delegates can embrace this ethos, through sustainability elements in local incentive activities, from tree-planting to wildlife conservation.
     
  6. New Zealand delivers unbeatable events
    You’ll find sophisticated meeting spaces, from purpose-built to the unique; a wide variety of accommodation options, from the boutique to five-star international brands; and food and beverage options that are fresh and fabulous. New Zealanders are exceptional hosts, renowned for friendly, professional service.
