Weather Tips:

Auckland weather can vary from cold to rainy to sunny in a single day. Please check the weather update at http://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/auckland/auckland-central for advice on sun protection and clothing layers during your stay.

Since the NZ sun can be very harsh, we recommend wearing sunscreen even on cloudy days. We also suggest you carry a jacket since the evenings get chilly. On April 21st, Thursday, please carry sun protection for the day out and a jacket for the evening since you will travel from the excursion directly to the banquet. Also note that there are no facilities to store bags or luggage at the conference venue so please store your belongings at your hotel or place of accommodation before the excursion.


If You Need Assistance:

Please see the Conference Program in your registration kit for further information or contact one of the local organizers and volunteers (people wearing yellow name badges and lanyards).

We look forward to seeing you in Auckland!
