Young TEC Events


Young TEC offers its members regular networking events with other young professionals working in the tourism industry, educational workshops and a mentoring and development programme which gives you the most up-to-date tourism information.

Regional Networking Events

Regional networking events are usually ‘after 5’s or breakfast events, with some including guest speakers. The networking sessions are held semi-regularly and mainly during the months of April and November. They are free for members to attend but there could be some personal cost for food and beverage.

There are 2–3 coordinators in Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
