Convention Activity Survey

The Convention Activity Survey (CAS) monitors and benchmarks the performance of more than 300 professional conferencing and meeting venues in New Zealand. The CAS is the 'supply-side' component of the Convention Research Programme.

Venues that regularly host MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) provide ongoing data on the events they have hosted. Participants include major hotel chains, convention and exhibition centres and boutique venue providers.

The programme is funded by the Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment in partnership with 14 Convention Bureaux in New Zealand (Auckland, Hamilton & Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Rotorua, Hawke's Bay, Taupo, Manawatu, Wellington, Marlborough, Nelson, Christchurch & Canterbury, Dunedin, Queenstown and Southland).
