first_imgStellar line-up of spring events in AucklandIt’s shaping up to be a memorable spring for Auckland with a stellar line-up of large and small, international and local events on offer.Over the next few months the region will play host to a vast array of events including the critically acclaimed musical Cats, ITM 500 Auckland V8 Supercars, the Auckland Diwali Festival, Taste of Auckland, Fleetwood Mac, KISS, Ed Sheeran and Robbie Williams to name just a few.Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) General Manager Destination and Marketing Vivien Bridgwater says, “with such an impressive line-up there’s no excuse to not visit Auckland this spring.“Auckland is a vibrant and exciting region jam-packed with great experiences. Whether you’re kayaking on the harbour, watching a hit musical at The Civic, celebrating Indian culture at Diwali, or walking in the Waitakere Ranges, the show never stops in Auckland,” she says.To make the most of the busy calendar of events ATEED has kicked off a domestic marketing campaign under the ‘AKL: The Show Never Stops’ banner.The campaign will run in Northland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty, as well as in the fly markets of Wellington and Christchurch encouraging people to visit Auckland for some of the events and spend time exploring what else the region has to offer.Ms Bridgwater says there’s also some fantastic prizes up for grabs as part of the campaign to entice domestic visitors to visit Auckland including double-passes to events and a major prize which includes double passes to four events of the winner’s choice.“The AKL: Show Never Stops – Stellar Spring Line-up campaign is part of the work being done to grow the visitor economy in line with the targets in the 10-year Auckland Visitor Plan. ATEED – on behalf of Auckland Council – aims to grow the visitor economy to $7.23 billion by 2021,” she says.“Domestic tourism currently injects more than $2.5 billion to the local economy and Auckland continues to attract the highest numbers of domestic visitors than anywhere else in the country.”Source = Auckland Tourismlast_img
