About TIA

The Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) is the only independent association that represents all sectors of New Zealand's large and diverse tourism industry.

We are vocal supporters of our industry, working to ensure tourism gets the recognition it deserves as a vital contributor to the country's economy and social health.

We have some 1500 members ranging from large publicly listed corporates to SMEs. Collectively, our members make up around 85% of New Zealand's tourism turnover. The more members and support TIA has, the stronger our collective voice and the more influence we have on policy and decision making.

  • We lobby local and central government to shape policies and create an environment that helps our industry grow and flourish.
  • We led development of the industry's Tourism 2025 growth framework which aspires to achieve total annual tourism revenue of $41 billion by 2025.
  • We provide leadership on matters that impact on the competitiveness and success of the tourism industry.
  • We deliver a comprehensive and diverse range of industry events including: TRENZ, the New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference, TIA Regional Tourism Summits and the TIA National Tourism Summit.

Join TIA and enjoy the many privileges membership offers, as well as helping create a stronger tourism industry.
