This week's newsletter is in a slightly different format, highlighting events going on and providing some useful tips and links to assist you in business. Towards the end we revert to our more standard format and next week Red Boots and the team will report on the comings and goings in the Industry.
We've received some comment on the recent International Airshow in Auckland and inparticular a need to ensure New Zealand remains a credible "airshow" destination. Taking on these types of events as one of our members did is a daunting challenge. We'd like to hear your views on how we can encourage more foreign visitors to come to our trade show. Afterall this is an integral part of our conference as we position the sector as a force in international niche markets.
