We want to acknowledge the uncertainty and vulnerability you will no doubt be feeling. These are indeed tough times. We are a resilient industry, and we will recover – but that may take some time and investment and an immense collective effort.

The role of Hawke’s Bay Tourism is about creating demand for the region 6/12/18 months out. So while we must absolutely do all we can to support our members during these volatile times, we cannot lose sight of the need to ensure our region’s visitor economy is primed to welcome back visitors – both domestic and international – as a sense of normality returns to our industry, whenever that may be.
