It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the City of Sails for the NZ Regional ANZICS Annual Scientific Meeting which will be held from 4-6 April 2018 at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. 

The Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Starship Children’s Hospital is proud to host this event for the first time. The theme of the meeting is “Size Does Matter!” reflecting the innovative and challenging differences between critically ill neonates, children and adults. The programme will deliver thought provoking and challenging plenary sessions with interactive case based discussions from an inspirational national and international panel that includes parents, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

The conference venue is located in the heart of Auckland’s vibrant Viaduct Harbour. The traditionally lively social programme will showcase New Zealand’s rich maritime history. Following the Welcome Reception, stroll past the super yachts to Dr Rudy’s Rooftop Bar where teams can compete in a ten pin bowling challenge. 

Join us on Thursday for canapés at the Blue Water-Black Magic Gallery, a tribute to one of New Zealand’s sporting heroes, Sir Peter Blake where the winning team can ask our special guests, Richie and Gemma McCaw the first question at the Champagne Q&A. 

Comedian Jesse Griffin AKA country singer Wilson Dixon from Cripple Creek, Colorado will make you roar with laughter throughout The Gala Dinner at The Maritime Room. Dance the night away or watch the world sail past on the balcony with spectacular views of the Waitemata Harbour. 

Don’t fall victim to your overindulgence - renew your body and mind with the highly spirited and enthusiastic team from Lululemon who will guide you through complimentary yoga at the start of the day.

We hope you enjoy your time in Auckland!
