Description

Tourism: Is it Alive and Well in Kapiti and What is the Future for Us?


The Electra Business Breakfast Kapiti is delighted to be hosting Prof Ian Yeoman who describes himself as a professional crystal ball gazer or futurologist specialising in travel & tourism.

Tourism is clearly an important component of the economic wellbeing of Kapiti. To have Ian speak from his experience and provide thought leadership on tourism in Kapiti, is exciting, and excellent timing as the Kapiti Economic Development Leadership Group go about their work.

Ian will talk about international and national visitor perspectives along with what the future looks like and the opportunities available to Kapiti.

See you there! Book early to avoid disappointment.
