Having recently returned from attending the world’s premier convention and meetings industry trade event, IMEX Frankfurt, Te Pae Christchurch General Manager, Ross Steele is buoyed by the future potential for the city.
Based in Germany, Worldwide Convention Specialists supports convention centres and convention bureaux throughout the world, including Kuala Lumpur, Toronto, Cape Town, Stockholm, Basel and Brussels, and now Christchurch.
AEG Ogden has had a long association with the Worldwide Convention Specialists (WCS) Director, Anette Palm, who understands the importance of regular ‘in-market’ meetings with clients face-to-face.
“Our history shows that associations primarily book events with destinations or venues with whom they have built a mutually beneficial business relationship and when AEG Ogden are involved it gives the client extra confidence during the selection process,” Ms. Palm said.
“With Te Pae Christchurch opening next year, it is an exciting proposition to share with our long-term client base – many of whom organise more than two or three events worldwide, and most importantly, seek venues within the Asia Pacific region.”
