Wellbeing & Public Policy  • 5th–7th September 2018 • Wellington, New Zealand


We’re delighted to have been able to get fantastic rates with some of Wellington's main hotels; you’ll find them some of the best deals in town!

To take advantage of these special rates, bookings must be made during your online registration for the conference. Please do not contact the hotel directly. If you have any questions, give us a call on +64 4 384 1511.

We’d like to encourage you to all stay at the conference hotels as this will mean that everyone’s in the same place giving more opportunity for you to network with new friends outside of the conference hours.
