Wellington launches a network of lawyers

Wellington has launched the Wellington Advocate Network with local thought leaders to expand its trade event offerings and impact.

The network’s initial members include a mix of academics representing the local arts, music, engineering, computing and health sectors, as well as national association representatives from the National Council for Women and Volunteering New Zealand.

Irette Ferreira, trade events manager in Wellington, commented:Trade Events Wellington has strong, long-standing relationships with many key stakeholders [who] play a crucial role in securing these international events and creating new opportunities to represent Wellington to the world.

“In formalizing our relationship, we aim to recognize the positive benefits they bring to Wellington’s economy and society through their conferences.”

Ferreira said that with the full reopening of New Zealand’s borders and the planned opening of Wellington’s new city center convention center, Tākina, in June 2023, the number of international offers has increased since the start of 2022. ; she added that Tākina has already booked more than 80 conferences.

One of the first members of the Wellington Advocate Network, Suzanne Manning, President of the New Zealand National Council of Women, will host the International Council of Women’s Executive Committee Meeting and the Asia-Pacific Council Meeting in 2023.

In the long term, Manning hopes to bring the International Council of Women’s International Congress to the capital. She said: “Bringing the conference to Wellington will allow our members to connect with the work our sisters are doing around the world, and in particular to strengthen our ties with the nations of the Pacific.

His colleague Brian Diettrich, a lecturer in ethnomusicology at Victoria University Wellington’s School of Music, is working with Business Events Wellington to bid for the International Conference on Traditional Music in 2025.

He commented, “We anticipate that the 2025 World Conference will bring together scholars, performers and students from across our region and around the world in an inclusive and interactive meeting.

“Victoria University of Wellington and NZ School of Music is an opportunity to expand our networks and collaborations globally.”
