The New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference

The New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference


Jul 4, 2019

The NZHIC is the only dedicated event for New Zealand’s hotel sector. Guest speakers from within the New Zealand and Asia/Pacific accommodation industry, tourism sector, economists, and government representatives covered topics including the living wage, guest technology, today’s role of the general manager, change management, and revenue management. But it’s not just about informative sessions.


“We see the event as an opportunity, not just to get sales leads and connect with decision makers within the industry, but to understand their industry trends and support them.” Steve Baker, Whangarei Drycleaning & Linenmaster


This year Linenmaster sponsored the Regional Hotel Employee of the Year Award at the awards night dinner. In previous years Linenmaster has been a gold level sponsor, putting on morning tea or lunch. The Regional Hotel Employee of the Year gives the rising stars in the industry a chance to shine. These are the people on the front line that make all the difference to a guests stay, making them pivotal to New Zealand’s greatest export earner - TOURISM!


This year’s winner was Edward Judd, General Manager at Novotel & Ibis Rotorua. We want to congratulate you, Edward, and all the other nominees and category winners!
