Napier ready to reconnect

Hawke’s Bay was represented at the recent AuSAE’s LINC Conference earlier this month by Donna Ransfield, Senior Event Planner from Napier Conferences & Events, as well as the Hawke’s Bay Convention Bureau.

Armed with hand sanitiser, vaccine pass and a mask, Donna attended the three day conference held under red light restrictions at the Rotorua Energy Events Centre.

“To be amongst industry peers and seeing that an event such as this can be held safely under red light restrictions was inspiring,” said Donna. “It gave us the opportunity to connect with peers, understand challenges and how our industry can overcome them.”

A highlight for Donna was keynote speaker Jehan Casinarder. “Learning how to tell a good story to support leadership, marketing as well as health and safety was motivating. He also articulately recognised the enthusiasm, courage and leadership of both delegates and exhibitors in attending the conference given the current environment.” 

“LINC gave attendees the inspiration to move forward in our industry – to network, reconnect and build new business relationships, giving a sense of confidence for the future”.

Napier Conferences & Events are looking to the future, enthusiastically planning their attendance at MEETINGS 2022 in Christchurch.
