Thursday 19th March 2020 - Expo, Registration and Entertainment

Following feedback from both previous years exhibitors and delegates we are making a slight adjustment to the expo hours.  The Clubs New Zealand Hospitality Expo will be starting at 12.00pm at Club Hastings this will give exhibitors plenty of time to get set up, it will also give attendees plenty of time to travel to Hastings and register for conference.

The difference this year is that the expo is going to go LATE! The expo will be open from 12.00pm till 9.00pm and incorporate the evening welcome function.

The Expo day will feature great exhibitors (of course), chances to win and lunch.  As expo will only run on Thursday 19 March we are asking all attendees to ensure that your travel arrangements allow you to arrive at Club Hastings by 12.00 on Thursday 19 March 2020.

Friday 20th March 2020 - Full Day Conference and Entertainment

This year the Elective Workshops are back by popular demand. The Workshops will be half hour sessions focusing on specific areas of club business. There will be no additional cost to attend the elective sessions, but we will be asking each attendee to indicate what elective sessions they will be attending at the time of registration – we will have details of the elective sessions prior to opening registration so you have plenty of time to see what sessions are right for you.

After the elective sessions lunch will be provided before we launch into an afternoon of keynote speakers.

After a full day of conference, delegates will be treated to another fantastic Clubs New Zealand cocktail function.  Again there is no additional charge to attend the cocktail function.

Saturday 21st March 2020 - Clubs New Zealand 2020 Annual General Meeting and Entertainment

Saturday will run as usual for the Clubs New Zealand 2020 Annual General Meeting.  The detailed agenda for the AGM will be sent out in the New Year.


The 2020 Conference will feature three elective sessions on Friday morning. There is no additional cost to attend these sessions, however, you must select which sessions you will be attending at the time of registration.

On the registration form you will see a tab called “Elective Registration”.  After you have completed the registration details and travel details for your clubs’ attendees you will be able to choose the elective sessions each attendee wishes to attend.
