Save the Dates and Register your Interest now!

In conjunction with Freeonlinebooking and Hoster, the Bed & Breakfast Association of NZ invites you to register for our upcoming roadshows.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn strategies to maximise your room rates and increase direct bookings. From understanding pricing psychology to leveraging technology, you will gain practical insights and actionable tips to elevate your business's profitability.

Your workshop is brought to you by two seasoned professionals who know what it takes to get those all important direct bookings.  

At the end of the workshop, you’ll know how to: 

• Fine-tune your online booking system to ensure those all-important commission free bookings come your way
• Develop marketing strategies to support your business decisions
• Align these practices and strategies to Tourism New Zealand's
marketing emphasis and your local Regional Tourism Office.  

Please bring your laptop (and relevant passwords) to be business ready.

Make this time to work on your business count! 

Along with the latest industry updates there will be hands-on practical sessions.  If you bring your laptops with you you'll be able to make immediate changes to your business.  And, of course, there will be plenty of opportunity to network and catch up with everyone.
