The Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) is the only independent association that represents all sectors of New Zealand's large and diverse tourism industry.

We are vocal supporters of our industry, working to ensure tourism gets the recognition it deserves as a vital contributor to the country's economy and social health.

We have some 1500 members ranging from large publicly listed corporates to SMEs. Collectively, our members make up around 85% of New Zealand's tourism turnover. The more members and support TIA has, the stronger our collective voice and the more influence we have on policy and decision making.
