English New Zealand holds a successful mission to Europe

English New Zealand, the association of 26 member schools exclusively devoted to representing the English language industry in New Zealand, both private and state, has just completed a very successful trade mission to Europe. 

A delegation of 10 English New Zealand schools visited three European metropolises in a row - Madrid, Milan and Prague, from 28th September to 2nd October 2015 where they held a total of 430 individual meetings with 43 agencies from Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania, Switzerland and Albania.

The trade mission is expected to improve the demand and underscore the performance of New Zealand as an ELT destination for European customers. “We’ve just completed a three-city tour of Europe – Madrid, Milan and Prague, and it has been a wonderful experience. We’ve really enjoyed getting into these new markets,” said the trade mission leader Tim Brown, CEO of The Campbell Institute, on the success of the mission.

English New Zealand’s mission, a bespoke event to a select audience, was to establish the visibility of the destination in the European market by welcoming 12 agencies in Madrid, 17 in Milan and 14 in Prague. “We had more interest from agency representatives wanting to participate in all three destinations than we could accommodate which shows increasing interest in promoting New Zealand and English New Zealand schools,” said Kim Renner, Operations Manager at English New Zealand. 

The trade mission was also attended by representatives of the Embassy of New Zealand in Madrid, including the Ambassador, and the Consul General of New Zealand in Milan. 

The event was organized in cooperation with StudentMarketing, a global market intelligence and business development consultancy, who ensured the quality of education agencies and managed mission logistics. “We were tasked to use our capacity and market intelligence to ensure that the right format, dates, location and delegates are chosen for the event,” said StudentMarketing’s CEO Samuel Vetrak.
