ITC students help industry promote ‘Loving NZ’ competitionPosted on 06/10/2020 by Hayley Clark
Auckland’s Botany Town Centre is offering Kiwis the chance to win $5,000 worth of travel around the country these school holidays.
The competition, ‘Loving NZ’, is taking place from September 28 until October 11, and student volunteers from ITC are helping to make it happen.
The ‘Loving NZ’ competition
The Loving NZ competition is about offering Botany Town Centre visitors the chance to explore New Zealand and its best attractions.
To enter, participants must collect a ‘passport’ from Customer Services, then explore the mall to find eight stands representing eight of New Zealand’s most iconic and incredible tourist attractions. Participants must scan a QR code at each location to complete their passport and enter.
These attractions are:
Whale Watch Kaikoura
Wai O Tapu
A draw on October 12 will determine the lucky winner of a $5,000 Flight Centre voucher, but participants will also be entered to win a family pass to one of the attractions and a $500 travel voucher.
These vouchers can be used however the winners please, and entrants can enter one passport per day during the promotional period.
How is ITC involved with Loving NZ?
As ITC and AJ Hackett have a long-standing relationship, we were approached to help support them in this new sales initiative, ‘Loving NZ’.
Competitions such as Loving NZ offer the perfect chance for ITC students to spend time volunteering and gaining valuable experience in the tourism industry before graduating.
During this competition, four ITC students from Auckland and three from Whangarei will be assisting at the AJ Hackett stand at the Botany Town Centre. They will be able to chat about the AJ Hackett bungy, while also building their confidence and experience in communicating with the public.
For the seven volunteers, these two weeks represent that chance to get a leg up in the industry and add highly relevant experience to their CVs. An AJ Hackett representative has already told us that once a vacancy becomes available, one of our students will be in line for the role as a result of her outstanding work.
