Ruapehu Regional Visitor Development Plan

Visit Ruapehu is seeking local visitor sector and community partner involvement in the development of the ‘Ruapehu Regional Visitor Development Plan (The Plan).

This is a critical step in the implementation of the Accelerate25 Economic Action Plan for the Manawatū-Whanganui Region.

The work involves the development of a clear ‘Value Proposition and Brand Promise’ for the Ruapehu sub-region (encompassing the Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks and the Whanganui River) alongside a ‘Destination Development Plan’.

The Plan is fundamental to the Accelerate25 goal of growing visitor numbers in a sustainable manner and increasing the visibility of the key Ruapehu sub-region  and the experiences it delivers.

Local visitor sector and community partner input needed

Input from the local visitor sector and community partners will be key to capturing the authenticity of the region and the success of this project. To capture these views, opinions and experiences three workshops have been organised as follows:

Whakapapa Village - The Chateau Tongariro Hotel
Monday 10th April 2017 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Afternoon tea and refreshments provided

Taumarunui- Central Park Hotel
Tuesday 11th April 2017 from 11:00am - 2:00pm
Light food and refreshments provided

Ohakune - Powderhorn Chateau
Wednesday 12th April 2017 from 11:00am - 2:00pm
Light food and refreshments provided.

Those interested in, or are part of the Visitor Sector, or are community partners, are invited to participate in the workshop nearest to them. These workshops will generate valuable input and insight which will then be used to inform the Ruapehu Regional Visitor Development Plan.

Everyone’s views, opinions and experiences are valued, and the wider we can engage in these discussions, the stronger the outcomes will be.
