Christchurch hosting 2015 CINZ Conference

28 November 2014

By Claire Hector-Taylor, Conventions & Incentive Executive, Christchurch & Canterbury Convention Bureau

Exciting news for the city was announced yesterday. While on her visit to the city this week CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan confirmed that the Conventions & Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Annual Conference and AGM will be hosted by Christchurch in 2015. It will see the city and region showcased to over 150 attendees from the Conventions and Incentives industry over 29-30 September next year.

With the help of the Bureau and Christchurch members we are putting together a fantastic programme for next year, showcasing some of the wonderful new venues and top services the city has to offer.

Speaking at the Christchurch and Canterbury Convention Bureau (CCCB) networking function yesterday CCCB manager, Caroline Blanchfield says 2015 will be an excellent time for the New Zealand conference sector to take a new look at the city’s new meeting opportunities.

“Christchurch is re-establishing itself as one of New Zealand’s leading conference destinations, and we value the support of CINZ in helping us achieve this,” she says.

Since the earthquakes Christchurch’s conference sector has worked hard to reinvent itself with the support of 62 convention bureau partners who continue to show their resilience and commitment to Christchurch.

What else is the Christchurch Convention Bureau up to?

Next week marks a return to the Australian market with CCCB joining CINZ to exhibit at the Professional Conference Organisers Association Conference in Canberra (30 November to 2 December).

Conference Market is High Value – Recent Info

A few weeks back the Convention Delegate Survey was released. It provided some interesting information about the value of conference activity for the region:

Australian delegates spend an extra 4.2 nights in the event region before or after event and another 1.5 nights elsewhere in NZ.

Non-Australian delegates spend an average of 5.4 nights in the event region before/after an event and another 3.2 nights elsewhere in NZ.

On average each international delegate spends $2,307:

  • Australians spend $1,929
  • Other International $3,011
  • Domestic $1,595
  • Local $803

When looking at the International Visitor Survey we can also compared average spend per night for Business Visitors at $201, International Delegates $343 vs Holiday Visitors $269.

    Common rail direct injection is an intelligent way of controlling a diesel engine with use of modern computer systems.Common Rail direct injection helps to improve the power, performance and reduce harmful emissions from a diesel engine. Conventional Diesel Engines (non-CRDI engines) are sluggish, noisy and sensor in performance compared to a CRDI engine.
    Common Rail Nozzle or Common Rail Injector Valve is also sometimes referred to by many similar or different names. Some brands use name CRDe / DICOR / Turbojet / DDIS / TDI etc. All these systems work on same principles with Common Rail Injector slight variations and enhancements here and there.
    Common rail direct injection system uses Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit which is like one single rail or fuel channel which contains diesel compresses at high pressure. This is a called a common rail because there is one single pump which compresses the diesel and one single rail which contains that compressed fuel. In conventional diesel engines, there will be as many pumps and fuel rails as there are cylinders.
