Whiria ngā tāngata, Weave the people together is the premier conference of 2021 for any health professional involved in palliative care.

Whiria ngā tāngata honours the concept that we must all weave together in partnership to ensure the best outcome for people who are dying.

More than 200 health care professionals from a range of backgrounds – hospice, hospital, aged care, community will come together for two days of intensive information sharing and learning.  Networking and meeting new people and connecting with new providers is a hugely important part of Conference 2021.

There are a range of sponsorship opportunities available that will show case your business, service and product to the key decision makers within palliative care.  This is your opportunity to show your commitment to supporting good end of life care for all New Zealanders.

There is only one of each opportunity available, so please ensure you contact us asap to discuss this further.

International Keynote Speakers – $20,000 NZD

Conference App – $6,000 NZD

To further reduce the footprint of our Conference 2021 we have made the decision to move all our delegate information to app-based communications – there will be no printed handbook in 2021.  This makes the APP the primary source of all Conference timetables, speaker and venue information and also the KEY opportunity to profile your company to delegates.  We will profile your support throughout the app, where possible, naming your company as the key supporter of the app.

Brain fuel partner – $5,000 NZD 

Your sponsorship will provide the brain fuel to all delegates through the daily catering at morning, afternoon tea and lunch.

Delegate pack partner – $2,500 NZD

Your sponsorship will provide all our delegates with their materials for the Conference.  You’ll be able to put your branding as partner on the delegate lanyards, name badges and pocket programmes.  A wonderful opportunity profile your support of hospice to our delegates.
