Venture Taranaki is here to help restoratively grow our visitor sector

Venture Taranaki works across all aspects of the visitor sector. From undertaking a wide range of initiatives aimed at increasing visitor numbers into the region, to providing support to individual businesses in the industry, we are focused on enabling the sector to flourish and prosper.

Promoting the Region

Our core activities span promoting the region through a number of channels including a range of visitor guides on key topics which profile many of our key attractions and operators, undertaking targeted promotional campaigns, connecting with our database via electronic newsletters, attending visitor trade shows, and hosting visiting media to experience all that Taranaki has to offer.

Many of these provide opportunities for operator participation and the best way to keep up with the latest news and offerings is to subscribe to the Taranaki - like no other newsletter. 

Another role of Venture Taranaki is to support enterprises in the visitor industry. We do this in several ways, including providing a range of resources to enable sound decision making. These include event and conference toolkits, a business toolkit, economic impact studies, industry and sector profiles and more. You can browse, read and download these publications. 

We also compile up-to-date regional data through our six-monthly Taranaki Trends report, which is a comprehensive snapshot of the latest regional statistics and our regional business survey.

Our advisory team are available to discuss your tourism business with you on a one-to-one basis and can offer support across a number of areas including business mentoring and capability training. 

Whatever you require - from regional imagery to local contacts, to finding out how to market to the international visitor market - we are only an email or phone call away.
