Welcome Reception

Delegates of the NZTHRC, 2010 are welcome to join us for a Welcome Reception on 23rd November, 5pm-6.30pm at Piko Restaurant in the WH Building of AUT University. The Welcome Reception is included in the conference fee. We will also be accepting conference registrations between 3pm and 6.30pm.

Conference Dinner - 25th November 2010

The conference dinner will be hosted at the Maritime Room at Voyager, New Zealand Maritime Museum on Auckland's waterfront. Prior to the dinner attendees will be given a complimentary entry to Voyager and a guided tour of the new state of the art interactive exhibit 'Blue Water, Black Magic. A tribute to Sir Peter Blake', which has NZL32, Team New Zealand's winning yacht from the 1995 America's Cup, as it's centre-piece.

The Maritime Room is a waterfront location with stunning views out over Auckland's Waitemata Harbour. The dinner will feature a high quality three course meal followed by inspirational key-note speakers, who will reflect on the challenges and triumphs of creating one of Auckland's top tourism and hospitality attractions. This evening is an opportunity to experience firsthand a new and significant tourism attraction which celebrates and honours one of New Zealand's most revered yachtsman and leaders and to hear from those intimately involved in its creation.

This is more than just another conference dinner... Combine inspirational speakers with a long late spring evening, the Auckland waterfront and superb food and you have a very special occasion not to be missed.


Delegates of the NZTHRC, 2010 will have the unique opportunity to participate in a powhiri (welcome ceremony), hosted by the tangata whenua at the Marae on AUT's city campus. Please note that the Marae has limited space, so please let us know early if you wish to attend the powhiri. The powhiri is included in the conference fee.
