It’s all happening during Conference week in Hamilton. Our 2024 NZPI Conference includes nine field trips and eight different social functions to take you across the Waikato.

Our field trips have something for everyone. Join the peloton for an e-bike ride along the 65km Te Awa River trail, visit Ngarunui Beach, one of the best surf breaks in New Zealand, and learn about its climate challenges and opportunities, or take part in the NZPI Open at the beautiful Ngāruawāhia Golf Course. These events have been carefully chosen by the conference committee to be both informative and fun, while showcasing one of the country’s fastest growing regions.

Our social events are a fantastic way to spend time with old friends and form new connections. The Good George Brewing Company describe themselves as the best thing to come out of Hamilton. Register for the Good George Experience at NZPIC24 and see if you agree. Then there’s the world-famous Hamilton Gardens. The Hamilton Gardens Walk and Dinner is one of our much-anticipated social events. Fancy a quiz? Enjoy drinks and a variety of canapes from one of Hamilton’s best restaurants (Gothenburg) while mixing and mingling with fellow planners at our Mix & Mingle Quiz Night.
