Last night, Goway Travel, Tourism New Zealand and 11 supplier partners joined together to host more than 270 agents and consumers at the InterContinental Toronto Yorkville hotel for a trade show and information session about all things New Zealand.

Starting things off with an energetic haka, attendees got a glimpse of all there is to see and do on both the North and South Islands, including tours, excursions, modes of transport and the various Stays of Distinction available through Goway.

From the many adventure-based activities and rich Maori culture, to the world-class food and wine and stunning natural scenery, Goway shone the spotlight on this land of kiwi birds, bungee jumping, whale watching and hobbits.

Suppliers in attendance were:

  • Air New Zealand
  • Time Unlimited Tours
  • Polynesian Spa
  • Intercity
  • Te Puia New Zealand Maori Arts & Crafts Institute
  • Kiwi Rail / Interislander Ferry
  • Ngai Tahu Tourism
  • Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism
  • Whale Watch Kaikoura
  • Nelson Marlborough Tourism
  • Heli Tours

Although a fair distance away from Canada, and particularly from Toronto, the ease and comfort in which travellers can get to New Zealand was also highlighted, with Goway partner Air New Zealand – part of the Star Alliance – offering up details on its flight service: it offers over 3, 5000 flights per day and operates out of six gateways in Canada and the U.S., including Vancouver.

Flights out of Vancouver are aboard the airline’s 777-200ER aircraft, which features four classes of seating including Business Premier with its comfortable lie flat seating.
