BEIA launches a new website with a comprehensive digital planning tool
Edited by Travel Weekly


    Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA) has announced the launch of a new website for members and clients, which includes a comprehensive digital planning tool.

    BEIA chief executive, Lisa Hopkins, said their goal was to create the definitive guide to business events in New Zealand.

    “We are incredibly proud to be launching this new resource. Everything organisers need to know about planning a business event in New Zealand is now at their fingertips in one interactive site,” she said.

    The site provides easy access to membership information, regional insights, news updates, events and programmes, industry states, and other useful resources.

    BEIA’s online planning tool replaces the printed Event Planners’ Guide, produced for 30 years and fondly known as the ‘Industry Bible’.

    Developed within the website, it has been designed to assist clients searching for their next event destination and venue. Event planners can find and select regions and suppliers based on their individual requirements.

    BEIA demonstrated the new planning tool to clients at MEETINGS 2024 in Rotorua last month.

    “The feedback we received was overwhelmingly enthusiastic,” Hopkins says. Comments included: ‘Love this!’, ‘This is going to save me hours of googling’, and ‘Thank you BEIA, you’ve just made my job a lot easier!’.

    BEIA is inviting feedback on the new planning tool. Anyone interested in more information can contact BEIA member relationship manager Nicky Tilsley directly.
