Development West Coast’s (DWC) Tourism Team, alongside representatives from six West Coast tourism operators, completed a successful sales trip to Auckland, connecting with eighty of the city's most influential inbound travel agents, and the team at Tourism New Zealand.

The visit showcased the West Coast's diverse tourism offerings and shared the exciting new developments happening on the Coast in Q1-Q2 2024, including over $100 million in tourism and infrastructure investment.

The event reinforced the exceptional natural beauty of the region, and empowered agents to confidently sell the West Coast as a must-visit destination on any New Zealand itinerary.

DWC, Franz Josef Glacier Guides, Franz Josef Wilderness Tours, Glacier Shuttles and Charters, Lake Brunner Eco Lodge, Shantytown Heritage Park, and representatives from the West Coast Wilderness Trail, conducted a series of training appointments.

DWC also capitalised on the opportunity to attend the TECNZ Christmas Symposium, gaining valuable industry insights and networking with key stakeholders with more than 242 attendees.
