There is just one week to go until the much-anticipated Auckland Airport New Zealand Tourism Forum, with the high-profile 2023 line-up including Lufthansa Consulting’s Arvind Chandrasekhar.
Traditionally, the event is a unique chance to gain valuable insight into the latest developments in the airline industry from those with many years of experience, and this year promises to be no different.
Alongside New Zealand aviation leaders including Auckland Airport chief executive Carrie Hurihanganui and chief customer officer Scott Tasker, the 2023 programme also features the Lufthansa Consulting Associate Partner.
Based in Frankfurt with the internationally renowned consultancy, Arvind has wide international experience, advising clients in the travel industry across all continents.
He has also previously lived or worked in the Middle East, India, Australia and the UK. At Lufthansa Consulting, he heads the firm’s Network and Fleet Management practice area.
Arvind has supported aviation companies, governments and investors on a wide range of issues including airline start-up/growth strategy, airport business development, network and fleet management, M&A and transformation. He has also served as a speaker, author and trainer at several forums.
From this wealth of knowledge, Arvind will be delivering his thoughts about the topic on everyone’s mind – the reset of the tourism industry and the critical role airlines are playing in this shared journey.
As an island nation, New Zealand tourism sector stakeholders are well aware of the pivotal position airlines occupy in delivering international tourists to our gateway cities and around the country.
The pandemic made this even more obvious, and influenced the way all stakeholders carry out their business. The multibillion dollar airline industry was no exception to this.
It has always operated to finely tuned strategies, but just how has their approach been changed by the pandemic and what does it look like going forward?
And as the world’s biggest aviation brands continue to rebuild routes around the world, what are New Zealand’s strengths and challenges in attracting airlines?
Expect to learn the answers to these questions and much more when you join the New Zealand tourism community at the Auckland Airport New Zealand Tourism Forum.
Can you afford to miss it?
The Auckland Airport Tourism Forum will take place on 10 May, at Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre, Ōtautahi Christchurch, at TRENZ, New Zealand’s biggest and most influential tourism tradeshow.
