COLAB21 POSTPONED UNTIL 2022
Virtual update on 19 October 2021, conference day delayed until 29 March 2022





 
It is with regret that we need to postpone COLAB21. The current lockdown levels have created too much uncertainty and with many members, presenters, partners and delegates coming from Auckland, it is considered important that the whole country is at Alert Level 1 in order to hold a successful event. 
The full format conference will now be held on 29 March 2022 in Wellington. But we don't want to wait until then to share with you some important updates and inspiring messages from the offsite sector. Therefore, we will be hosting a virtual update on 19 October 2021.
COLAB21 Virtual will include International Keynote Speaker Chris Giattina from BLOX, the Government Industry Update session with MBIE, Kāinga Ora, MSD, The Accord and BRANZ followed by a panel discussion and offsite learnings from the UK.
