Tourism Growth for New Zealand

At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we are involved in the accommodation industry in Auckland. Latest Tourism reports show total visitor spending in New Zealand grew by 11 per cent to $7.1 billion in the past year, driven by strong growth from the United States, Germany and China.

Financial figures for the year ending in June showed visitors increased their spending by $800 million.These figures are based on results from approximately 8900 visitors departing New Zealand airports.

The results showed there was a significant increase in total spending by visitors from the United States, up an estimated 53 per cent from the previous year to $773m, and Germany, up 63 per cent to $375m. Spending by visitors from China rose 26 per cent to $912m, as visitors moved from lower value short shopping trips to longer stays.

But how to tap the Chinese Market is still a challenge. At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast , we accommodate a percentage from that FIT market , but tapping into the Chinese Tour Market is still difficult ….or impossible !

Spending by Australians fell 4 per cent to $2.11b.
And business spending tumbled by 22 per cent from $585m to $459m.

Tourism is still strong tho. Although we found it to be quiet for accommodation in the month of July , August shows improvement . Next week we have the All Blacks playing Australia at Eden Park. Full House at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast.
Go Black !

New Zealand challenges for 35th America's Cup

As a Kiwi sailor and being part of Eden Park Bed and Breakfast in Auckland, I am a TRUE BLACK supporter of the announcement that Team New Zealand , backed by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron , New Zealand challenges for 35th America’s Cup.

The Kiwi syndicate, became the first team to officially announce their challenge .

Scuttlebutt in the yachting circles says that Italian team Luna Rossa and Artemis submitted their entries before Emirates Team New Zealand, but have yet to officially announce their challenge. Others who have signaled they’ll be throwing their hat in the ring are Ben Ainslie Racing (GBR) and a French challenge led by Franck Cammas, bringing the suggested total of challengers for the 2017 event to five . But scuttlebutt also says that this is all supposition because some believe that the funding for these challengers it’s not guaranteed.

After the withdrawal of the Challenger of Record ( Australia) last month, Oracle have been desperately trying to salvage the public relations fiasco surrounding the race. It is expected that the role of (COR ) will go to the first challenger to submit their entry, rumored to be Luna Rossa.

Supposedly we are also led to believe that the Italian team led the way in rallying their fellow intended challengers to issue a joint accord statement to reiterate their support for the event following Team Australia’s withdrawal . (I note Team New Zealand’s non participation in this accord.)

After last years racing and our demoralizing defeat to the enemy( Oracle ) , I am still a firm believer that we have the technological  skill and the sailors to take this piece of silver from the Americans .

Go Kiwis!

Auckland's top Restaurants offer Terrific food, served with great charm and efficiency in a smart but probably somewhat informal atmosphere.
