Tourism Central Otago (TCO) are continuing with our campaign targeting the Upper North Island and Australia promoting the regions strengths as a cycling and active holiday destination.
Between the start of September and December a range of digital promotions, print articles and consumer events will generate interest and awareness of Central Otago’s range of holiday options.
TCO are seeking your support to develop a 5-7 day prize package to be promoted across these activities in a digital campaign as well as two consumer events, one in Australia (Flight Centre Cycle Epic & Trail Runs) and one in New Zealand (Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge).
These events attract active travellers with disposable income, those who enjoy cycling, running and mountain biking. Additionally the prize package will be promoted online through the www.centralotagonz.com website and social media channels increasing the audience even further.
The details of each event are;
FLIGHT CENTRE CYCLE EPIC, Queensland – September 9/10 2017
Event attracts 2,000 entrants mostly, cyclists and runners from Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia.
TAUPO CYCLE CHALLENGE SPORT & LIFESTYLE EXPO, Taupo – 24th November 2017
