Added Value


Conference Orientation

Wednesday 9am to 10am
Mary Alice Arthur

The conference officially opens on Thursday 16 September, but increasingly the Wednesday Fringe Day has become an incredibly well supported and important part of the conference. We’ve decided to help delegates attending the Fringe Day to learn the ropes and settle in quickly by having a conference orientation and warm-up session. This session will introduce you to the conference and to each other; it will set the scene and help you to break the ice.

Themed ‘bad taste’ where almost anything goes, use this opportunity and dress to kill or wear those really bad clothes you couldn’t bear to throw out from the 70s and 80s, or be your own ‘alter ego’, NZ Idle, etc. Pre-dinner drinks followed by a great dinner, dancing and lots of laughs.
