Destination Queenstown provides membership to businesses trading in the Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) territory.
We have three types of membership; Commercial Rate Contributing Members, Corporate Subscription Members and Individual Subscription Members. For Commercial Rate Contributing Members registration form please access the commercial rate membership registration form.
Subscription Member Registration
A Subscription Member is an individual, company or partnership trading in the QLDC territory who has not paid or contributed to the current commercial rate of QLDC and does not pay rent to a commercial ratepayer but has an office and staff member in the QLDC territory. These businesses can become members after approval from DQ’s Board and upon payment of an annual membership subscription.
Please review the Individual Subscription benefits and Corporate Subscription benefits and select your preferred membership category. You will be invoiced once this form has been processed and approved.
Adventure Activity Regulations
The Adventure Activities Regulations require all operators who provide activities that are designed to deliberately expose participants to a risk of serious harm to undergo a safety audit by a recognised auditor and be registered. This aims to ensure operators can’t start up, or continue to operate, with inadequate safety systems.
As part of our membership application process, each new member must advise if they need to comply and if so, provide status of compliance.
