Something a little different this year - but a resounding success and we've had fantastic feedback so far.
When we settled on Waitangi as the location for our conference - the birthplace of our nation - we thought it appropriate to incorporate some Maori cultural awareness into the programme. We asked you at times to step out of your comfort zone, but hopefully you all thought it was worthwhile and feel enriched by the experience.
Our conference focus was career-long relationships and it's evident this is in fact building year-on-year. There is a growing friendship and a shared bond between many NZTG members which is pleasing, and healthy relationships between members and their key suppliers.
A big thank you to everyone for making this conference possible - for your participation, input and generosity of time. Thank you to HPM Legrand for sponsoring our meet and greet drinks, Schneider Electric for sponsoring our partner's lunch and J.A. Russell for sponsoring our Friday night BBQ. Thanks to all the suppliers who gave away stand prizes. A special thanks to J.A. Russell for backing us and our conferences every year.
What a great result - 104 delegates, 172 at the BBQ (including over 40 children) and 160 at our marquee gala dinner.
We loved seeing all the wives, partners and children having such a great time - may this continue in Fiji next conference!
