Businesses in the Waitaki district have been called to a workshop to discuss how they can benefit from an influx of more than 80,000 visitors to New Zealand for next year's Rugby World Cup.

"We want to get the business community together to brainstorm and workshop some ideas around the Rugby World Cup," Tourism Waitaki general manager Annabel Gudsell said.

Tourism Waitaki would give a brief presentation about the cup, the expected visitors and what other areas were doing, including Southland's "Spin It Wide" campaign.

The workshop, on July 1 at 5.30pm in the Opera House, was aimed at businesses.

Tourism Waitaki could then go back to the business community with a strategy.

Invitations had been sent to businesses on Tourism Waitaki's database, but any who had not received one should contact Tourism Waitaki.
