Like many of us, I am a passionate advocate on the value of business events and attending the BEIA Annual Conference allows me to walk the talk!

It is an opportunity to connect with industry friends and share knowledge to tackle challenges our industry faces, all while providing an economic and social impact back to the local community. If that is not enough, there is also the exceptional Hawke’s Bay wines…

Why Blair thinks you should attend

The feedback from past conference delegate surveys and from this year’s programme committee was clear- we wanted three things and believe that is what we are going to get.

We want to be able to learn from industry experts, we want to spend time working together as industry leaders to solve problems and realise opportunities, and finally we want to spend time with one another to share, learn and celebrate everything that is great about our sector.

Amid ongoing uncertainty, the BEIA conference provides an opportunity to learn from our peers, spark conversations and collaborate with others to move forward.

The 2021 annual conference features a well-balanced blend of learning, participating, and connecting, in order for us all to leave with fresh ideas, new networks and more confidence in how we tackle business events in the "new normal".

Louise Ryburn

Managing Director for Celebrity Speakers
Biography
Why Louise thinks you should attend

I have been attending BEIA (formerly CINZ) Conferences for 20 years and have always found them incredibly valuable, and this year I know it will be even more so than ever! It is important that we share our experiences and knowledge and support one another – no one quite understands our industry like our peers!

The speaker line-up is also exceptional this year (not biased at all), they have been selected based on feedback, trends, and their ability to really provide our industry with the tools to move forward.

I look forward to seeing you there!
