Auckland, the City of Sails, is the gateway to New Zealand, one of the world's top outdoor
paradises. It is located on both Tasman Sea and Pacific and boasts countless beaches, a vibrant
cosmopolitan culture, and excellent cuisine and wines. It is connected to many major cities in Asia,
Australia, South America and the USA by direct airline flights. At the time of ISITA2008,
it will be late spring in Auckland and the pohutukawa (New Zealand Christmas Trees) should be in full
