Conference 2020

The Canterbury Branch is delighted to be hosting the 64th NZGFA Annual Conference in 2020. 

Resilience - Staying Strong for Tomorrow's Challenges

Chateau on the Park, Hilton Doubletree, Christchurch

Sunday 5th – Tuesday 7th July 2020

The 2020 NZGFA Conference is an excellent opportunity for you to join the largest annual gathering of ground spreading professionals for friendship, fun, inspiration and business development.

Whether you are a sole operator, part of a larger ground spreading company, a supplier, manufacturer or a stakeholder, the NZGFA Canterbury branch welcomes you and your families.

Our team has been working hard over the last couple of months to secure some amazing speakers who will address this year's theme of 'resilience - staying strong for tomorrow's challenges' within the context of our industry, your businesses and ourselves personally. We are very excited to announce that we have already booked Doug Avery (The Resilient Farmer), Sam Johnson (The Student Volunteer Army), Lisa Tamiti (Ultra-Marathon Runner) and Mark Inglis (Mountaineer). We have also invited John and his team from Enthuse back to entertain us again at our NZGFA Awards Gala Dinner. 

We are proud to be working with Christchurch's The Chateau on the Park. With recently renovated first class facilities in a beautiful setting, you can be assured of great accommodation, hi-spec resources, plenty of space (indoor and out) and excellent customer service. 

As in previous years, we require all attendees to follow a two-step process:

  1. Complete the 2020 Delegate Registration Form.
  2. Book accommodation directly with the hotel, using this link: Book The Chateau.
