Sponsorship opportunities

This year’s conference offers sponsors with opportunities to network and engage with many different sponsorship options.

 

The 2022 Financial Advice New Zealand Conference will ignite what drives you and challenge you to take risks, explore new opportunities, step outside the box and do things differently.

The brand new and vibrant Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre is a truly spectacular venue where delegates, sponsors and associates will finally be able to connect again in-person after such a long period of lockdowns and restrictions – an occasion we are all so very much looking forward to!

We believe this event will be the most engaging and memorable conference yet. One that will ignite new ideas, new possibilities, new conversations – and set sparks flying in the industry. We can’t wait for you to join us!
