Save the date: Hospitality New Zealand conference 2019

20 Feb 2019

The dates and location for Hospitality New Zealand's 2019 conference and awards have been confirmed, so mark your calendars now and save the date!

Each year, Hospitality New Zealand hosts the nation’s premier hospitality awards ceremony. This year, the annual event will take place from 15-17 October in Hawke's Bay. The conference will be held at the Napier Convention Centre, and registration for tickets will open in May.

Our conference theme for 2019 is Expanding Horizons. The event will be packed with talks by the industry's trail blazers as well as important workshops. It will offer valuable opportunities for our members to tap in to current trends, update themselves on important changes, and ultimately to learn, share, network and grow as hospitality business operators. 

We are looking forward to sharing the line up of influential, international speakers with you in due course. Keep your eyes open for further updates on the conference schedule, as well as details on how and when to complete submissions for our Awards of Excellence.
