Arataki attends the NZMT Networking Event 2017

By | Guides

Our CEO – Lee Timutimu – has been fortunate to receive an invitation to attend the NZ Maori Tourism networking event in Te Anau, thanks to Simon Phillips who is Director of Regions at NZMT.

“This will be our first official foray into the NZ Maori Tourism space as a tourism operator, and we’re very privileged to be among some of the best tourism operators and Maori businesses in Aotearoa.”

Nga mihi nui kia NZMT!
