ETNZ 2021 Conference and Tradeshow

The ETNZ Executive is proud to announce the 2021 Conference and Tradeshow. After the devastating effect of COVID-19 on the industry both here and across the world, it is important that we make opportunities for our industry members to reconnect with each other and our suppliers to exchange ideas and knowledge.

ETNZ wants to support as many members as possible to attend conference and are thrilled to announce that we have obtained funding to subsidise the registration costs for financial members down to $80.50 per person.

Further, for those who are unable to attend, one topic from each session will be live-streamed so you can join in. Find the full list of sessions here.
