Welcome to the Hawkes Bay Tourism Industry Association website.
We are a Membership based, not for profit organisation that aims to promote and co-ordinate opportunities for economic growth and prosperity for the visitor industry in Hawkes Bay.
In an exciting new development, effective 01 July 2011, the Association has formed a new Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO)- Hawke's Bay Tourism Limited, to promote the region to potential visitors.
Chairman of the Board of the new RTO is George Hickton, former CEO of Tourism New Zealand, who will work alongside new General Manager Annie Dundas, whose experience includes being an Executive Team member at Tourism New Zealand in New Zealand and overseas for more than 15 years.

Want to know what is open and when?

We are winners of the Napier Inner City 2009 Gold Awards for Exceptional Ongoing Customer Service, and a 2009 Business Service Awards finalist.
