Registrations Now Open for FM Summit 2019!

Have you heard? We're bringing FM Summit 2019 to Te Papa in Wellington - the first time the Summit has been held outside of Auckland.  With speakers from New Zealand and around the world presenting on a wide variety of big picture and toolbox topics, two special Te Papa tours to choose from, and a fresh combination of plenary and break-out seminar sessions across both days, we think 2019 is our strongest line-up ever. Throw in our Gala Awards Dinner presented by Journalist Paddy Gower, the not-to-be-missed Trade Expo, and the fact that for the first time ever the Summit is being held in Wellington, and you can see why we're excited! Don't miss the industry event of the year. Register today!
