Welcome to Regional Tourism New Zealand

Regional Tourism New Zealand (RTNZ) is a membership based and funded organisation representing the interests of the Regional Tourism Organisations throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. 

RTO’s play an invaluable role in the development of their regions, taking an holistic approach to planning for and sustainably growing the visitor economy. They are the organisations tasked with managing tourism and its opportunities and impacts for the benefit of their communities, and marketing the destination to build the visitation and the experiences available to visitors (and locals) in that region in a sustainable way. This translates into greater prosperity for all.
