Conference & AGM 2021

4 Aug 2021 - 7 August 2021
Copthorne Hotel & Resort Paihia

“Leadership in the Fencing Industry”

The Fencing Contractors NZ 2021 Conference & AGM 

PAIHIA, AUGUST 2021

Known as the gateway to dive sites and sandy beaches in the Bay of Islands, Paihia is the location for this year’s conference, with the business end of the conference taking place at the Copthorne Hotel Resort Bay of Islands. Paihia is only 20 minutes from Kerikeri airport. If you want to take some more time out and explore the beautiful North, you could fly into Auckland or Whangarei and travel North. For those that arrive early there will be a mix and mingle on Wednesday. Thursday will see the AGM and Workshops with a group activity in the afternoon. Friday we will be holding the largest fencing field day that New Zealand has ever seen with our partners and non partners so they can showcase their products to our members and well as the public, there will be live music, food and a bit of everything for everyone.

BAY OF ISLANDS

This part of New Zealand is stunning, with plenty of activities and relaxation in resort like surroundings – we encourage you to get off the fence line for a few days and refresh. “The Bay of Islands is a New Zealand enclave encompassing more than 140 subtropical islands next to the country’s North Island. It’s known for its undeveloped beaches, big-game fishing and Maori cultural artefacts. It’s also home to the 19th-century whaling port of Russell, whose waterfront promenade is lined with remnants from its days as the country’s first colonial capital.” Bring your partner and extend the stay for an extra few days or take time to enjoy the well-planned conference activities, socialise and recharge the batteries.
