We are pleased to offer conference attendees the option to network and socialise at the following activities and functions.
Pre-conference Activity Morning (Optional)
Friday morning will see us facilitate a range of activities around Rotorua for those looking to add a different type of inspiration to their conference experience. With so much that Rotorua has to offer, why not take advantage of the beautiful location and get out and explore!
Mountain Biking - Local osteopath and keen mountain biker Martin Lambert has made a booking for landrover shuttles to carry any would-be mountain bikers up into the redwood forest where the best trails are. The shuttles collect you and bring you back to the head of the trail to maximise your riding time in what is some of the best riding in New Zealand. Approximate cost $50 with your own bike, or bikes can be hired. Contact email@example.com to be put in touch with Martin for more information or to reserve your spot.
Redwoods Treewalk - Suspended up to 20m above the forest floor, talk a walk through the majestic Redwood forest. This 700m long eco-tourism walk has 27 suspension bridges and is only a 5 minute drive from the conference venue but feels a world away from civilisation as you are in the heart of the forest. See more at www.treewalk.co.nz Regular entry is $29 - please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can ask for a group discount with sufficient numbers, and help arrange carpooling/rides for those without transport.
Polynesian Spa - Visit the iconic geothermal bathing pools right across the road from the conference venue. With both acidic and alkaline springs, a variety of pools and packages to choose from and a range of other treatment options available what better way to ease into a relaxing weekend away for Conference! If a morning soak doesn't entice you, the Spa is open til 11pm so you can always head over at the end of the day too. Visit www.polynesianspa.co.nz to book treatments or private pools, or pop over anytime for the public pools. Prices vary, delegates staying at the Millennium Hotel can pick up a 10% discount voucher from hotel reception.
