Conference Dinner, including RSA Awards

Friday 28 June 2019
7.00pm – 11.00pm

The RSA Annual Conference Dinner is set to be a highlight. Always a highly anticipated event during the Conference, we have a great night of dancing and dining planned this year, with the theme Matariki – Māori New Year. Matariki is the Māori name for a cluster of stars which is visible in the New Zealand night sky at a specific time of the year. This year Matariki falls between the 25 June – 3 July, so in honour we will celebrate this important occasion at our Conference Dinner.

We encourage you to get involved with the theme and add a little sparkle to shine like a star and even dress like one if you must! 

This event is optional and can be purchased in addition to any registration.
