Delegates who have registered to date will have their registration automatically roll over to the new dates, with a range of accommodation on offer for the new dates.
With BEIA members expressing they are keen to go ahead with the conference, BEIA chief executive Lisa Hopkins said that now more than ever, meeting face-to-face is important for the industry after a period of lockdown.
“With the theme ‘BEing Brave, Bold and Ready’, the programme is highly relevant in this challenging time of change,” Hopkins said.
“We looked at feedback from past conference delegate surveys and from this year’s programme committee and the message was consistent—our members want to spend time with one another as industry leaders to solve problems, realise potential opportunities and celebrate everything that is great about our sector,” she says.
The Napier War Memorial Centre on the waterfront will be the main conference venue, with ToiToi – Hawke’s Bay Arts and Event Centre hosting the gala dinner on 3 November, while The Old Church Napier will host the welcome function on 1 November.
“We believe this will be the most important and critical conference in the history of our organisation, and we invite all members to be part of the conversation and solutions for the future of our industry.”
Registrations for the event are open online.
