Invitation – Christchurch 2022

New Zealand’s newest Convention Centre

To say there has been a reasonable amount of change in 2020 - 21 is an understatement!

NZDA has a very strong preference and commitment to run our annual flagship event—the NZDA Conference & Expo and there are so many reasons for that. Yes, we have ‘worn’ the previous underwriting costs over the last two years, but now of course, we hope to recover some of that previous financial loss. Registrations going into the Rotorua Conference last year (unfortunately cancelled due to COVID restrictions) were the highest we had seen in a number of years.

So, to Conference & Expo 2022….

As you will be aware the NZDA Conference & Expo is taking place at Christchurch’s Te Pae Convention Centre. Newly completed and clearly New Zealand’s premier venue for conferences and exhibitions, we are very excited to be situated in what simply is an incredible facility.

We are very much looking forward to hosting NZDA Members, their staff and the dental industry. This is such an opportunity to reconnect in person, with each other.

For NZDA our annual conference enables us to review, reinvent and deliver to members a New Zealand focused, outstanding scientific programme, masterclasses, hands-on classes, the NZDA Awards evening, employment fair class reunions and a great exhibition. We plan to have our international speakers here in person, but of course also have complete capability to connect with them ‘virtually’.

My personal thanks you to the many companies who have transferred their exhibition stand bookings from 2021 (Rotorua) to Christchurch 2022; your support has been outstanding.

The safety of all attending the conference & expo is at the very forefront of the planning and via Conference Innovators who are industry leaders in managing these events, we have available the latest technology and systems (constantly updating) to do so.

The exhibition will be open 19 – 20 August to registered conference delegates only. Delegates and exhibitors will be required to scan in and out of the exhibition to allow for contact tracing should it be required.

Catering for delegates and exhibitors will be held amongst the exhibition, all staff will be required to be registered, two staff are included with each exhibition stand, additional staff are welcome if registered.

As usual location preference within the exhibition is given to sponsoring partners, then to 2021 companies who rolled their 2021 commitment over to 2022. Then allocation will be assigned based on the date each application is received. For the full terms and conditions associated with participating please refer to the terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.

I wish to personally acknowledge the enormous work and success of the very committed team who have been planning (and re-planning and re-planning) for this event.

We hope to have your support and to see you in Christchurch in August 2022.
