BE Reconnected begins next week in Auckland, New Zealand, signalling the return of business events to the country.
Organised by Business Events Industry Aotearoa (formerly named CINZ) on Tuesday 1 December at Auckland’s Aotea Centre, BE Reconnected will be New Zealand’s only business events industry gathering for 2020.
The event is being run under strict health and safety guidelines in the Events Sector Voluntary Code.
Australian buyers have also registered for the BE Reconnected programme, and will connect online with members throughout the day.
Chief Executive Lisa Hopkins said: “BE Reconnected has been designed to support the industry to reconnect with industry peers, and to discover new product, see how they can support regional centres in New Zealand, and find out what they have to offer.
“Over 270 business event organisers and decision makers from around New Zealand will be meeting face to face with over 120 members from across the regions.
“The focus is on the rebound and recovery of our sector. For the foreseeable future, we will have to be flexible in our approach to how events are staged and managed, with a combination of in-person and hybrid, but importantly it is all about staying connected.”
