Gas Industry Forum 2014 Moves to the South Island

Gas Industry Forum 2014 Moves to the South Island

After the last three years at North Island venues, the annual New Zealand Gas Industry Forum - the premier networking event for the gas industry in New Zealand - is moving to the South Island. To be held at The Heritage Queenstown from 5-7 November, this year’s event will build on the format of the last few years.

There are a few changes; there will not be any Wednesday afternoon Technical workshops because the NZIGE will hold the workshops with their AGM, which is to be held a few weeks prior to the Forum. In addition, the cost for a trade display will reduce to $500 + gst from $850 + gst. This should mean an even better trade display turn out. More details on Trade Display and Sponsorship Opportunities will be circulated very soon.

Whilst we are still putting together the agenda we are letting you know where and when as early as possible so you can “grab” a cheap flight and secure your accommodation at the Heritage Hotel. The accommodation package provided by the hotel provides good value for money at $179 incl gst per night. This includes breakfast for two. This means you could easily bring a partner to the event and maybe even opt to stay an extra couple of nights to enjoy the sights and sounds of Queenstown. To book your accommodation, you can phone 03 450 1500 or email groupzqn@heritagehotels.co.nz and mention the Gas Industry Forum.

Attendance charges have been held at last year’s level which helps ensure the Forum maintains its exceptional value-for-money status. Delegates who are employed by organisations which are members of either the LPG or Gas Associations, or who are individual members of the NZIGE, pay just $490 + gst. Non-members pay $590 + gst.

For any organisations or individuals not yet members of their respective industry bodies, it is not too late to join up and reap the benefit of the lower membership attendance rate.
