Previewing the Auckland economy

Oftentimes the economy is analysed retrospectively by examining what had been. This time, we want to look at what is to come in order to showcase the economic opportunities and pockets of growth for investors.

Nick Hill, Chief Executive of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) is the man who is permanently in the loop. He has to. In his role leading ATEED to host major international events, attracting foreign business investments and creating public-private partnerships to foster growth, Nick is well-positioned to identify hidden opportunities in our city's economy that have the potential of prospering Aucklanders on a macro- and micro- level. In doing so, he will give you the insights you need to become future-ready.

Talking points
  • ATEED at a glance: background, objectives, main activities and overall vision for Auckland.
  • Auckland economy: From the perspective of ATEED what has been driving economic growth in Auckland and what will be driving future growth.
  • Migration and housing: the effects ATEED activities have on net migration/population growth/housing demands.
  • Events and 2021: The economic legacies left behind by major events and how that translates to prosperity at a micro-level. Major events in 2021 and what is being done now to prepare the city for it. 
  • Overseas businesses and investors: What are some of the priority industries/sectors ATEED attract to Auckland and what are theses businesses’ activities in Auckland.
  • Regional growth/prosperity: What do projects like The Southern Initiative seek to deliver and why it is important to ensure a more equitable distribution of our recent economic growth.


Nick Hill has extensive experience across the private and public sector. This includes the Chief Executive role with the Commerce Commission and leading the formation of Sport and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC, now known as Sport New Zealand). He also has significant experience in the energy sector, having worked 10 years with ECNZ and Fletcher Energy in New Zealand, and with Santos in Australia. Before joining ATEED, Nick was a Partner of specialist New Zealand public policy and management consulting firm Martin Jenkins – which he joined in 2011 to establish the firm’s Auckland practice.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
