Chairman’s Cocktail Party

6.15pm – 8.15pm at Te Papa

A highlight of every Conference, the opening Cocktail Party will be held at Te Papa in the Exhibition Hall. This is a great way to catch up with your podiatry friends and meet new ones.


Conference Concept

The theme of the conference is The Patient Journey which will follow a patient who has an extremely complex medical condition - through the initial assessment to the development of a care plan.
The programme is designed to provide delegates with not only a glimpse of how the patient sees the journey, it will be jammed packed with good clinical evidence from a specialist multi-disciplinary team. These experts will provide diverse insights on the complex issues of patient and practitioner management.




PodiatryNZ reserves the right to make changes to the programme. 



6.30pm – 10.30pm at Mac's Function Centre

Time to relax and unwind. Wellington’s funkiest band Garage Latino will play Latin-American rhythms: cumbia, merengue and salsa. Bring your dancing shoes!
