Future focus: CINZ Conference 2017

International conference trends will be top of mind at the CINZ annual conference, taking place in Dunedin this October.

The 41st CINZ annual conference from 24 to 26 October is themed Ahead of the Curve, and focuses on the future with an insight into new generation technologies, smart thinking and leading-edge practice.

In keeping with the conference theme, CINZ is mixing up different presentation styles to match different ways of learning in 2017. Traditional plenary sessions will share the programme with shortened workshops, TED-style talks, and panel sessions.

There will be a line up of 12 international and local experts on the subject, including Deborah Sexton, president and CEO of the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), brought here by Tourism New Zealand with the support of Air New Zealand; incentive specialist, Fiona Batten, manager of Ci Events Australia; and Dunedin-based Ian Taylor, founder of Animation Research Ltd.
