There are two fabulous evening functions to attend while at Conference:

Friday 27th May, PlaceMakers Museum Mingler – 6pm to 9pm:


The Wellington City & Sea Museum is a stone-throw away from the TSB Arena, enjoy your refreshments and bowl food whilst learning about Wellington’s history which is housed in the Bond Store, an 1892 heritage building designed by leading architect Frederick de Jersey Clere. Set over four floors, the Museum shares some of the fascinating stories of the Wellington region.

The cost to attend is $50 + GST per person which includes your drinks and food.


Saturday 28th May, Black & Gold Tie Awards Dinner – 7pm to 12am:


This year we are celebrating in style with a black and gold tie Awards Dinner, celebrating our members’ success, announcing the Carpentry Apprentice Challenge winner and much more. The Awards Dinner starts with pre-dinner drinks in The Arcade (building adjoining TSB Arena & Shed 6) and will then move into Shed 6 which will have undertaken a breathtaking transformation into a suave Black & Gold setting fit for celebrations. A three course dinner, drinks and a ‘world famous in Wellington’ band will entertain for hours.

Unlike most year’s this is not a fancy dress event, with our conference theme being Success Through Change we have changed it up this year to a semi formal Awards Dinner, so please don your best black & gold sparkly outfits and come and celebrate success with us.

The cost to attend is $95 + GST per person which includes your drinks and food.
