Welcome Function – 5.30pm

The convention starts with a Welcome Function in the the Trinity Wharf Hotel for all delegates, speakers, sponsors and partners. 

This is an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends as well as network with those we may only meet once a year.  Drinks and Nibbles will be served, and our President, Eric Baggen, will welcome everyone before we head off to the Quiz Night. 

Proudly sponsored by:   

The BRENNTAG Quiz Night – 7pm

The Brenntag Quiz night has fast become a must do event and is extremely entertaining, fun and ever so slightly competitive!  There may even be people forming their teams already, but as there is no way for anyone to prepare for the questions, everyone has a chance to win!

Brenntag started this back in 2013, and the event just keeps getting better.  The Quiz starts at 7pm and will run for around 2 hours.  Food is provided to keep the brain cells working and there will be a cash bar available.

Location will be advised when confirmed.

Special thanks to Brenntag for sponsoring, organising and running this fantastic event!


Convention Dinner – 6.00pm

After a full day's sessions, everyone looks forward to the relaxing and tasty Convention Dinner.  This year we are going to stay at the Trinity Hotel to make it easier to pop back to your room after the sessions and prepare for the themed event.    

Thank you to our sponsors for the dinner:  

Entertainment will of course be available after dinner.   We have a fantastic band who will be providing excellent live music to dance the night away.

Special thanks to our sponsors for the entertainment:   


Get ready to unleash your creativity and paint the town with the vibrant palette of the kiwifruit! This year, as we embrace the theme ‘Green, Gold, and Ruby Red’, we’re not just celebrating these colours, we’re celebrating your imagination.

We can’t wait to see the ingenious ways you’ll bring this theme to life. Will you be a dazzling gold kiwi, a bold green vine, or a rare ruby red delight? The orchard of ideas is ripe for the picking, and we’re eager to feast our eyes on your brilliant interpretations. Let’s make this dinner a masterpiece of merriment and colour!

There will, of course, be prizes for the best outfits sourced from the local area.
