Tourism Export Council Members
The Tourism Export Council of New Zealand is a family of Full Member inbound tour operators and Allied Member product suppliers (accommodation, attraction, activity and/or transport). Full Members support and market Allied Member supplier products because they meet quality standards and offer the overseas visitor a New Zealand experience to remember.
“Meet the members” is a new section on the website where you can share some of your industry details for us to get to know you better. Send to the Chief Executive who will upload your photo and details to the home page.

Tourism Export Council of New Zealand Full Members are inbound tour operators who provide a vital link between the suppliers of New Zealand tourism product and the overseas travel companies which buy it. As specialists in inbound tourism, Full Members promote and sell New Zealand travel packages to offshore buyers such as wholesalers, travel agents, meeting planners and event managers.
All Full members must be Qualmark endorsed with our own set of criteria and this includes using at least 75% of suppliers who are also Qualmark endorsed in the various categories. In March 2012 an exclusive ‘tourism export council inbound tour operator’ mark was developed and non TECNZ members are not able to promote themselves off-shore with Tourism New Zealand as a ‘qualmark endorsed inbound tour operator’. We see this new endorsement as a significant marketing advantage over other IBO’s who are not members but operating in New Zealand
The Tourism Export Council works closely with the Department of Conservation (DOC) on delivering sustainable managed visits to the DOC estate with their passengers. Inbound tour operators have approved “guiding concession status’ which gives confidence and added value to offshore clients and agents wishing to work with an inbound tour operator.
Tourism Export Council of New Zealand Allied Members are New Zealand tourism product and service suppliers who ‘deliver the experience’ to our overseas visitors. Allied Members sell through Tourism Export Council Full Members to overseas wholesalers, tour operators and travel agents.
