Speakers Welcome – 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm (very flexible -you arrive when suits you -even  directly from the airport)

An informal reunion in Wellington’s waterfront (below conference venue) where speakers get together over drinks and nibbles to get rid of the jet lag.

Friday 21st February 2020

Conference wrap-up – Optional

An informal round-table / workshop / un-conference where we get together (mostly speakers but attendees are welcome too) and summarise what we learned over the previous three days.

Will be at the same venue as the conference but in a cosier room – The Loft

Runs from 9:00 am till noon and then we go for lunch together. Many of us keep going in the afternoon till 5:00 pm. Then we’ll tour some other breweries in Wellington 🙂

No specific agenda, you’re welcome to arrive anytime. Many speakers join us on their way to the airport.


 

(**) Schedule draft v2 – we are getting so much interest that we may need to extend the schedule to a Maximum (12 K + 12 T + 3 P + 6 LT) = up to 30 speakers (see below)

We’ll aim to have a full schedule in January 2020
