July 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

When the Trans-Tasman bubble opened in April, it was touted as a game-changer for New Zealand’s tourism sector. But has this ‘boom’ in Aussie visitors eventuated or are we yet to see the benefits?
Join Anita Hawthorne of Air New Zealand, André Lovatt of Auckland Airport and Mike Pohio of Ngāi Tahu Holdings as they discuss the challenges of the pandemic, the impact of our expanded bubble and their short-term predictions for the future of the tourism and business sectors. 
Topics covered include:
  • The impact of COVID
  • An update on life in the Australasian bubble
  • Future predictions and insights as NZ bounces back
  • Skill shortages and the future of travel
  • The anticipated impact of the COVID-19 vaccine
This is your chance to gain insight from those at the coalface of tourism – book now!
