Our strength as the voice of the tourism industry comes from the collective support of our membership.

These are the most challenging of times for our industry and the nation. TIA is working with government to manage a myriad of immediate issues, keeping communication channels open, gathering industry concerns and providing all the support we can to members.

We are also involved in discussions on recovery and what the new future of tourism in New Zealand will look like. Our role as the peak industry body is going to be more important than ever in the months ahead.

We understand that being in business is challenging, even in the best of times. Become a member and know you always have someone to support your business growth and be in your corner when it matters.
