NZDOHTA 2015 Conference Deferred

This year's conference was an outstanding success. The Conference Committee did a great job getting the best speakers, at a wonderful venue and with a sensational social programme.

We have been asking ourselves - how can we top that? And the answer is we don’t think we can (in the short term).  That’s why the Board are creating a “super team” of the very best conference organisers to plan and execute the next conference. It’s going to take a bit more time which is why we wont hold a Conferernce in 2015. We will do it in 2016 instead.

Wellington will be the place for the 2016 Conference – we will let you know the dates before the end of the year.
