How can I attend MEETINGS?


Hosted Buyer

Do you organise events, conferences, tradeshows or travel incentive programmes? Do you have business to book, but need a bit of inspiration as to where, when and how? If so, MEETINGS is the event for you! When you attend as a Hosted Buyer, we’ve got everything covered. Our Hosted Buyer programme is open to those in New Zealand and Australia. The programme offers complimentary travel* to Rotorua, accommodation in one of our Host Hotels, and free tickets to the MEETINGS social events so you can sit back and relax after all of your meetings!

With prescheduled appointments organised before MEETINGS, you’ll be sure to meet everyone you need to meet in order to organise your next event.

Day Buyer

If you organise any events in your role such as Board Meetings, Team Building Activities, Staff Functions, Christmas Parties, Award Ceremonies or more, you can attend MEETINGS as a Day Buyer. As a Day Buyer, you can attend MEETINGS at a pace that suits you. Registration is free and you can attend the tradeshow for one day, two days, or even just a few hours!


As a service and/or product supplier to the Business Events Industry, MEETINGS is the perfect place to display your business. With approximately 200 Hosted Buyers, and approximately 300 Day Buyers each year, you’ll gain exposure to the business events industry over two days. Before the tradeshow, we help you to organise prescheduled appointments with our hosted buyers, meaning you’ll really be able to hit the ground running onsite.
