PillowMINT and New Zealand’s Orange Exchange Team-Up


Kiwi DMC Orange Exchange and Australian DMC partner PillowMINT have formed an alliance to allow Australian Meetings, Incentive and Events clients to more easily access the benefits of a DMC partner in New Zealand.

New Zealand has always been a popular destination for Australian corporate groups and economic trends are triggering an increase in Australian groups travelling to New Zealand.

The PillowMINT / Orange Exchange partnership increases the accessibility of the best New Zealand has to offer. The iconic activities New Zealand offers are well known to many Australian event professionals, however discovering the unique and emerging experiences that take a New Zealand incentive to another level require local knowledge and relationships.

Orange Exchange focuses on matching group objectives and needs with tailored experiences and programmes. This bespoke approach generates new ideas and often leads to unique ‘firsts’. This sense of adventure is based on world-class DMC staff and practices that ensure smooth delivery of extraordinary destination experiences.

PillowMINT offers Australian clients a direct link to Orange Exchange and allows a new level of service. “We’re here to help Australian meeting and incentive planners access the best of New Zealand for their clients. As more groups from Australia travel to New Zealand, we are committed to ensuring planners have access to bespoke experiences that will ensure they have the winning edge”, says PillowMINT Founder Rebecca Easterman.

Orange Exchange is part of The Orange Group, New Zealand’s largest event experience Group. While the Group has provided incentive and destination management services for over a decade Orange Exchange was launched June 2013. Orange Exchange provides high-end and bespoke experiences to groups from Australia, Asia and beyond.
