The Council for Australasian University Tourism and Hospitality Education

Lincoln University, Christchurch

CAUTHE entrusted us with their first conference outside Australia. Held over four days, and with delegates from around the world, it was the ideal opportunity to promote New Zealand, and post-earthquake Christchurch, as a destination.

We created a tasting plate of Kiwi experiences for the delegates to enjoy amidst the programme of speakers and workshops, including a pōwhiri, a welcome Kiwi BBQ (with a Plan B up our sleeves in case of bad weather) and a formal evening five-course dinner held at the historic Riccarton House. We arranged a tour of the post-earthquake City Centre, and to finish off the night booked out several local Christchurch restaurants so that delegates could experience a wide range of cuisine and Kiwi hospitality.
