The Tourism Export Council (TEC) is delighted to announce that this year the famed Xmas Symposium and Young TEC Summit will take place at the Skycity Convention centre in Auckland. The Young TEC event is on Tuesday 5 December from 1pm and the TEC Symposium follows the next afternoon, Wednesday 6 December from 2pm.

TEC CEO Judy Chen says these two events are offered to TEC and Young TEC members annually to encourage members to come together for networking and to be part of a fun and informative programme with great speakers from both within and outside the industry.

The TEC 2017 speaker line-up includes Paul Yeo from Tourism New Zealand, Tony Boot from BTM Marketing, Kiri Atkinson-Creen presenting on the successful Tuku Iho exhibition and the keynote speaker; Davey Hughes from Swazi Apparel.

The Young TEC Summit, the organisations main networking event of the year, will be delving into the ‘’kiwi way’’ and how kiwi culture contributes to our product and services. The combination of both guest speakers and a panel session makes this event one not to be missed.

The Tourism Export Council would also like to thank in advance Skycity, New Zealand Maori Tourism and BTM Marketing for their kind sponsorship to this year’s event.

For those non-members working in the tourism industry who are interested in finding out more about becoming a TEC member or attending one of our events please be in touch directly with the Tourism Export Council team.

Registrations for both events close at 5pm on Friday 25 November.  For more information please visit
