What is a Hosted Buyer?


As a Hosted Buyer at MEETINGS, you’re responsible for organising multiple events for your company throughout the year. From conferences, to award ceremonies, you’re constantly on the look-out for new products, new venues and new suppliers. MEETINGS is the one stop place for you to make all the contacts you need in the Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Events (MICE) Sector, across the whole of New Zealand. With 200 exhibitors from 19 regions all under one roof, you’ll leave MEETINGS with a wealth of knowledge, and the confidence to book your next events.

When you attend as a Hosted Buyer, we’ve got you covered! Applications for Hosted Buyers are taken from across Australia and New Zealand and are open to all who organise and manage events. As a Hosted Buyer, we’ll organise your return flights to Auckland, and your accommodation for your stay whilst attending MEETINGS. You’ll also receive complimentary tickets to our renowned social functions! The best bit? MEETINGS is completely free to attend!*

Before the event, we work closely with you and the exhibitors to produce a personalised diary of meetings, based on your company and upcoming business. You’ll arrive at the venue with a diary full of scheduled appointments of relevant exhibitors, who are eager to meet you and help you plan your next event.
