APSAD Auckland 2018 Conference

4 - 7 November 2018, Pullman Auckland Hotel, New Zealand

Kia ora,

On behalf of the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs, we are pleased to invite you to our beautiful City of Sails and fun, Tāmaki Makaurau, for the APSAD Auckland 2018 Conference.

The Conference will be held at the Pullman Auckland Hotel in the centre of Auckland from 4 to 7 November. It will showcase high quality and state of the art scientific research into treatment, prevention and policy while also providing an opportunity for practitioners to share their latest insights and lessons learnt. Wherever you have travelled from you will be warmly welcomed.

We will be sharing with you a uniquely Kiwi experience. Auckland is a diverse city full of activities and surrounded by breathtaking scenery! It’s the sort of place where sleep gets in the way! Exploring beyond Auckland will also be highly rewarding. And for those with a few extra days before or after the conference opportunities are endless - explore subtropical Northland and the Bay of Islands; the low rises of the Coromandel Peninsular; the magical experience of Rotorua; our vibrant capital Wellington; or the magnificent views of the Southern Alps. There’s plenty more!

On behalf of the APSAD Council, Organising Committee and the Scientific Advisory Committee we would be honoured to welcome you and your families/whanau to Auckland, New Zealand in 2018.
