From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:27 pm on 19 July 2017

The government forecasts visitor numbers in New Zealand will hit nearly five million, by the year 2023. But are we set up to cope with the influx of visitors, in terms of infrastructure, and how can we get the most out of our tourism industry? Auckland Airport chief executive, Adrian Littlewood, was one of four tourism leaders who commissioned a major study into New Zealand's tourism infrastructure needs and funding options, known as the McKinsey report. Adrian is speaking  at the New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference.
