Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA) and Hawke’s Bay Tourism have announced the postponement of BEIA’s 45th Annual Conference in Hawke’s Bay until 2022.

The decision was made due to the risks associated with New Zealand’s current COVID-19 outbreak, as well as the continued lockdowns in Auckland and Waikato, and the uncertainty around travel restrictions.

All delegates who have registered and paid for the conference, which was to be held from 1 to 3 November, will receive a full refund, with the new dates to be announced soon. BEIA’s Annual General Meeting will still go ahead online, and a date for this will be confirmed shortly.
