Social Events

We know you are the type who enjoys the social side of conferences so we've worked really hard to give you some fun experiences you won't forget in a hurry.

Welcome Reception and Cocktails (Wednesday 5.30 to 7.30pm)
After a busy day of fringe events - site visits, workshops and forums - you'll be just itching to unwind over a few drinks, superb cuisine, light entertainment and some not-so-serious networking with your colleagues and friends, old and new.

Join us in the Convention Centre's lovely West Gallery for a couple of hours to welcome in the spirit of the conference before heading out into a wonderful Wellington evening to enjoy cafes, restaurants, theatres and bars.

Let the fun begin… (Thursday 7.30pm to late)
By the end of the first formal day of conference your brains are likely to be full of so much information that you'll need to do a screen dump if you intend to get a good night's sleep.

What better way to relax than to put on your very best threads, splash around liberal amounts of nice smellies, add a few sparkly diamonds and head off to a glamorous night in Wellywood - that's right, New Zealand's very own Hollywood, in the heart of Wellington's 'star attraction', Te Papa.

Be thrilled by the best Wellywood has to offer, including a star-studded cast, entertainment right out of the Oscars and the odd (very odd) talent scout or two. As an added bonus we'll provide you with great food and beverages known for their relaxing effects to get you into the mood to boogie all night.

If you want to go that extra little bit, consider dressing up as your favourite movie star or movie character or just be content with adding a tiara or two (some props will be provided).

The conference organisers take no responsibility for anyone who doesn't have the time of their life…
