TRENZ kicks off in Auckland with help from ITC studentsPosted on 09/05/2017 by Jess O'Connor
New Zealand’s biggest travel and tourism trade event, TRENZ, kicks off in Auckland today – and ITC students are on-hand to make sure everything runs smoothly.
A group of 18 high-performing students have been chosen to assist as volunteers. They will support the presenters and attendees by:
- Helping the sellers set up their stands
- Manning key information areas such as coat check and food stalls
- Assisting with any last-minute errands or requests
ITC Account Manager Ceri Jenkins says volunteering at TRENZ is a great way for students to learn more about the exciting travel and tourism industry.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain a greater understanding of the industry and make some useful contacts,” says Ceri.
“They might even score a job – we have had students in the past gain employment directly from TRENZ.”
New Zealand’s top travel and tourism employers will be in attendance, as well as hundreds of international tourism representatives. Students will get to rub shoulders with tourism executives from around the world.
Tourism Industry Aotearoa Chief Executive Chris Roberts says TRENZ creates fantastic opportunities for tourism employers around the country.
“Buyers tell us that TRENZ is the most important New Zealand tourism product purchasing activity they undertake,” says Mr Roberts in a press release.
“The deals they make and relationships they build at this year’s event will generate tens of millions of dollars’ worth of new tourism for the New Zealand economy, benefitting communities across the country.”
The ITC volunteers will be able to witness this incredible exchange of ideas and business first-hand.In the Community, News | Tagged TRENZ 2017 | Leave a reply
