TOURISM company Real Journeys has been announced as the Queenstown Winter Festival’s new title partner.

It will be the first time in the Queenstown Winter Festival’s 43-year history that a Queenstown-based business has been the major partner.

Destination Queenstown chief executive Graham Budd said he was delighted with the new partnership.

“We are very excited to announce this partnership with Real Journeys, who have a deep connection with Queenstown and the wider southern region,” he said.

“This commitment also demonstrates their recognition of the value of the annual Queenstown Winter Festival to both our local community as well as our visitors.”

Real Journeys chief executive Richard Lauder said the company was pleased to enter the relationship as principle sponsor of the festival.

“We are also very proud to be the first local company to step up and get behind the winter festival at this level. Through this association, we expect Real Journeys, along with our Cardrona Alpine Resort and Go Orange businesses, will become more widely recognised, both domestically and internationally.”

The 2018 Real Journeys Queenstown Winter Festival will run from June 21-24.
