Registrations open for CINZ Conference 2019

Registrations have opened for the Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) Annual Conference and AGM to be held in Queenstown from 29 to 31 October.

This year’s conference theme is ‘Inspiring New Thinking’ and a host of speakers, panels and workshops will tackle topics including incentive events, resilience, leadership, international trends, keeping the pipeline flowing, and sustainability initiatives.

“Our conference delegates will have a chance to take in the very best of Queenstown, with the main event happening at Skyline Queenstown, the welcome function at Gibbston Valley Winery, and our conference finale dinner at Walter Peak Station with a return trip across Lake Wakatipu on the Earnslaw steamer,” said CINZ chief executive Sue Sullivan.

“We will be continuing the CINZ educational program, keeping our eyes up and looking here, Aotearoa New Zealand, and abroad for inspiration. Our international speakers are industry experts who will share their knowledge on how to design events with a ‘wow’, how to inspire delegates and create lasting memories, and the latest thinking on leadership and building resilience within an organisation.”

Keynote speaker Greg Bogue from Maritz Global Events will share his expertise and 30 years’ experience designing and creating events that make a lasting impression. In his role as chief experience architect, Bogue’s focus is on improving the guest journey and overall experience in meetings, events and incentive travel programmes to create greater impact for both organisations and their guests. He has also received numerous awards, most recently the PCMA’s Visionary Award as Supplier of the Year 2019.

Resilience Institute chief executive Brad Hook will use his research-based framework to give CINZ delegates practical skills and insights and into human resilience and wellbeing, both at a personal and organisation level.

The full conference programme is now online, and registrations can be made on the CINZ website.
