NPE (New Zealand)



19-21 JUNE, 2024

Ailevon Pacific Aviation Consulting is proud to deliver the 2024 RoundTable for destination marketing and route development in the Asia Pacific region, in the stunning NEW ZEALAND / AOTEAROA, HAWKE’S BAY, from 19-21 June 2024.  The Australasian Roundtables are the most intimate and accessible marketing and route development event for airports, destination marketing organisations and other key stakeholders in the Southern Hemisphere.  Participants interact with industry counterparts and airline representatives in an intimate setting that encourages conversation and a constructive learning engagement.


About the RoundTable:

There’s no peddling!  We allow our sponsors Hawke’s Bay Airport & Tourism Hawke’s Bay a quick presentation and that’s it!  The rest of the time, its airlines are talking about what they see in the industry, what their plans are and what they hope to achieve with new services and opportunities for growth.

For the airlines the benefit is they can tell the group what sort of routes they’re interested in what sort of support structures they require, and what their fleet availability looks like, etc.  So, by the time you see them next at a network/route conference or at the next headquarter office meetings that are planned, your all set to know what an airline needs from you.  Airlines tell us that the RoundTable participants prepare better proposals for growth and airports/destination marketing organisations are more deliberate and carefully considered in their strategic positioning and ensure whatever they propose, aligns with what their internal stakeholders at each airline need.

The earlier Australasia RoundTables in 2016, 2018, 2019, 2022 & 2023 had great feedback (see below from past events) which is why we’re doing it again each year and we’re proud to partner with Hawke’s Bay Airport & Tourism Hawke’s Bay in delivery of this event.  These RoundTables are designed to help clients, non-clients and airlines have much more fruitful air service development conversations.  As an industry we just don’t have enough opportunities share knowledge, build relationships, and make the air service development process more effective and enjoyable for all involved.  Which is why we’re planning to have at least one RoundTable each year.  Attendees love these RoundTables, our airlines love them and we think it helps when we get to hear from airlines what their needs are, directly.  Almost always, participants take something unique out of the event: perhaps a conversation over a drink with a network planner or a contact from another airport who’s done what you’re about to do.  We limit participation to a maximum of 40 people so there are plenty of opportunities for quality interactions.  But it does mean, we almost always sell out.

Air Service Development MasterClass

For those new to the industry or role that requires an understanding of air service development, we’re offering an extended pre-conference program that includes Network Planning & Air Service Development 101 training, including insights into incentives and collaboratively bringing along & engaging stakeholders as destinations look to build their air service offering.  This intense Master Class will cover the entire spectrum of activities required to consider at any airport, marketing board or agency where adding or creating new air service opportunities into a destination/city must be considered.  The day long MasterClass will include deep dives into the symbiotic nature of growing air services, business cases, aero pricing, and aero political aspects.  A sample business case and work necessary to deliver a killer business case will also be undertaken, to provide a learning and development real life example. Class size is limited to 10, so be in quick!
