WHAT DOES MEDIA ACCREDITATION GIVE ACCESS TO?

Media accreditation for the event offers access to the media tent, media goodie bags, wifi, refreshments and Destination Rotorua hosts who can tell you everything you need to know about the city. You’ll also get briefings on media areas for various events and access to media shuttles where required. Please note accreditation does not give VIP access.

MEDIA NZ EXPLORE PASS

Tourism New Zealand, as the government agency responsible for marketing New Zealand as a visitor destination, also provides information and support to ensure you get the best out of your visit to the country. If you’re international media you can apply for a Tourism New Zealand Explore Pass for discounts on a wide range of NZ accommodation and experiences: http://media.newzealand.com/en/explore-programme-for-media-visiting-new-zealand/. Applications will be assessed by Tourism New Zealand and, if successful, can take three weeks to process, so plan this well in advance.

If you have any media ideas you’d like to discuss with Tourism NZ directly, please contact Crankworx Rotorua media director Jenha Phillips with a brief and I can make a connection.
