As Wellington’s Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO), it’s WellingtonNZ’s job to promote the capital as a visitor destination and help boost our tourism economy.
WellingtonNZ’s Tourism Trade team works with a range of local tourism businesses, including attractions, tour operators and accommodation providers. Our team can help you understand visitor markets and connect with travel sellers.
Starting a business is a big decision, and we can offer quality start-up advice and support for new operators. For established tourism businesses, our team can help you access support to grow your business, connect with new markets and travel sellers, and increase your sales channels.
Our team works primarily with offshore and domestic travel sellers who promote Wellington as a destination to their clients.
There are opportunities for businesses to work with travel trade organisations. These organisations operate as intermediaries in the tourism industry.
Contact our Tourism Trade team if you’re considering working with a travel trade organisation.
The Wellington isite is a key stop for visitors to Wellington, so remember to keep the team updated on your product offering.
Maximise your exposure to engaged visitors by advertising in the isite through paid brochure display or digital signage.

They offer advice and resources to help you grow sales, take on more staff, access funding and steer your business toward success.
The Wellington Sustainable Tourism Programme develops local tourism businesses’ capabilities across the Tourism Sustainability Commitment (TSC) four pillars: economic, visitor, community, and environment.
