Boost for tourism networks as borders open

Posted by Paul Yeo on May 23, 2022

The Minister of Tourism, Hon Stuart Nash, announced on 21 May 2022 that he had agreed to support the i-SITE NZ network with $2.975 million of funding which will be used to upgrade some locations, enhance online services, and drive better engagement with local history, culture and heritage attractions.

“The iconic i-SITE network with its distinctive green lettering was first established more than 30 years ago. Each visitor centre is locally owned and operated by travel experts in its community, giving them a unique home-grown flavour.

“Even in an increasingly digital world of travel bookings and itineraries, these official visitor centres are a core element of tourism infrastructure. They reinforce our international reputation for being good hosts and offering a friendly local welcome."
