Tourism New Zealand Operator Workshop

Hamilton & Waikato Tourism, in conjunction with Tourism New Zealand, are running a workshop around making the most of your online presence on newzealand.com.

Accommodation, transport, and tourism activity operators throughout New Zealand can list on the Tourism New Zealand website www.newzealand.com free of charge. Newzealand.com receives around 14 million visits per year worldwide, and as such offers a great opportunity for tourism operators and accommodation providers throughout New Zealand.

Listing on the Tourism New Zealand website also allows operator to automatically list on the Hamilton & Waikato Tourism website, as our website takes a direct feed from of operator listings from newzealand.com. As our website, hamiltonwaikato.com, is the main portal for all our marketing activities, this is also a great opportunity for operators to have a presence on our website.

There will be two workshops available:
