Tourism New Zealand is an international marketing agency responsible for marketing destination New Zealand offshore. Tourism is now the world's largest industry, with more than 650 million people travelling globally on holiday each year and increasing by 3 percent annually. In this growth environment comes increased competition for New Zealand as a visitor destination. Tourism New Zealand's focus has evolved since its creation in 1901. More than 100 years ago tourism in New Zealand was just beginning, access was difficult, infrastructure was limited and marketing was in its early days. Today, the tourism industry has developed to a level of sophistication where Tourism New Zealand confidently markets New Zealand offshore, safe in the knowledge that when visitors arrive the New Zealand tourism experience will rival any world-class destination.
