Win the ‘ultimate’ tour of Wellington

Education agents and counsellors can be in to win the ‘ultimate’ tour of the ‘coolest little capital in the world’ in a competition run by the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency.


Four prizes are up for grabs, which include return flights and accommodation in Wellington for five nights, a helicopter ride over the city and visits to top education facilities. The winners will also tour Wellington’s famous film locations and studios where movies like Avatar and The Hobbit were created.

WREDA Education Programme Manager Brook Pannell said agents influence more than half the international students who come to Wellington and the competition is about increasing awareness and knowledge of the region.

“We’re aiming to pique agents’ interest in Wellington as a study destination and create four new experts for the region.

“All entrants will be encouraged to sign up for our new quarterly newsletter that contains tips and resources to help them market Wellington schools and institutions to students.”

To enter, agents need to answer three simple questions about Wellington and propose why they should be picked to win. They must also have current agreements with New Zealand institutions in order to enter.

Agents can submit their entries on this link.

The competition closes April 9 and the winners will tour Wellington from 8-12 May 2017.
