International Delegates

For those travelling from overseas, we encourage you to plan accommodation and travel in advance. Our hotel partners provide airport transfers and with the use of the shuttle service, travelling to and from conference is easy. For those requiring a visa for entry into New Zealand, we regret we are unable to provide a letter of invitation.

Transport

We provide a shuttle service from a range of hotels for a small fee, as well as shuttles from our LIFE South Campus (3 Lakewood Court, Manukau) and our LIFE North Campus (27 Arrenway Drive, Albany). 

Shuttle tickets will be available approximately 4 weeks out from conference. Pre-bookings are essential.

Due to the limited parking available onsite and in the surrounding area we strongly recommend the use of these shuttles.

Further information on shuttles will be released closer to conference.
