Exhibitor applications open this week for New Zealand’s leading business events industry showcase MEETINGS 2024 in Rotorua next June.
Run by Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA), the most important event on New Zealand’s business events calendar is taking place at the Rotorua Energy Events Centre on 19 and 20 June.
BEIA chief executive, Lisa Hopkins says stands at MEETINGS are in hot demand, and exhibitors are encouraged to apply early for MEETINGS 2024.
“MEETINGS 2023 saw unprecedented interest, with exhibition space sold out by Christmas. We will have increased stand capacity in 2024, but we are still expecting high demand. Our post-event survey showed $157 million was signed at MEETINGS 2023 for business scheduled over the next five years.”
MEETINGS is New Zealand’s only national tradeshow for the business events industry. The 28th annual event will host 500 buyers, with more than 220 hosted buyers coming from Australia, New Zealand and key international markets, and 250 domestic day buyers.
