Kia Ora !*FIRSTNAME*!,

The Australian Society of Travel Writers (ASTW) is touching down in Rotorua next week and the city is ready to give them the time of their lives with a range of unique experiences which will hopefully inspire them to put pen to paper.

Destination Rotorua Marketing (DRM) and Tourism New Zealand has sponsored the Society's annual convention to be held on October 28th and 29th with over 70 Australian travel writers from various types of media attending.

DRM is hosting a welcome function at Te Puia on Friday the 28th October where guests will be introduced to the Maori culture with a traditional powhiri welcome. They will then have the chance to view Te Puia's carving and weaving schools before heading to the Pohutu Geyser where cocktails, wine and indigenous foods will be enjoyed.

DRM would love your attendance at the welcome function:

Date: Friday 28th October
Location: Te Puia
Start: 6:20pm
Finish: 9:30pm

Please RSVP by 5pm on 26th October to Kathy Nicholls at or phone 07 351 7104.

Kind regards

Kathy Nicholls
