Qualified Leads

The South Island Hospitality Show is targeted to deliver a high quality audience – people who know that their business is dependent on the best products and services available, and have come with the specific goal of finding new suppliers and keeping up to date with the industry. You and your team need to get face-to-face with these visitors, one-on-one. With a top quality database of previous registered visitors, and an updated marketing plan to engage more, this is an ideal opportunity to identify new customers and develop new leads.
