Mihi Whakatau and Conference Opening
Monday 2 December, 9am - 10.30am
We invite you to join us at the opening of the 2019 ANZMAC Conference at Rutherford House. We look forward to welcoming you all with a traditional Mihi Whakatau (Māori Ceremony). The opening will be immediately followed by Professor John Deighton – our plenary speaker.
*Please note, this is a change from our originally planned opening, due to unexpectedly high registrations.
Monday 2 December, 6.15pm – 8.00pm
We’re delighted that Dr Deborah Russell MP will be hosting the ANZMAC Delegation at Parliament for our Welcome Reception. You will be treated to a high energy Pasifika performance that’s not to be missed! Please note, due to restricted numbers at the venue, we are unable to offer guest ticket purchases.
Tuesday Walking Tour and Tipple
Tuesday 3 December, 6pm
We invite you to join us in a casual walking group along Wellington’s beautiful waterfront to take in some of the wonderful sights of Wellington. The group will depart from Rutherford House at 6pm (meet at registration desk), walking along the waterfront into the CBD and finishing at a Wellington bar for a drink (at your own cost). A great opportunity to mingle with your fellow delegates in a casual setting.
Wednesday 4 December, 7pm – Late
Our conference will conclude at the end of the last day with the ANZMAC Conference and Awards Dinner which is being held in our National Museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. A three course meal will be provided and after the Award proceedings, you’ll get the chance to get up and dance to the infamous Beat Girls!
