Auckland's NZICC scores another big conference for 2020

Auckland has won the bid to host the World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA) Asia Pacific Region Conference in 2020.

It will be held at the New Zealand International Convention Centre and is the fourth medical conference to be secured for the region in 2020.

An estimated 2,000 family doctors from throughout the Asia-Pacific region are expected to attend the event in mid-2020, staying the equivalent of 12,000 visitor nights, and contributing $4.1 million to the economy.

‘It’s great to see the excitement that is building globally around New Zealand’s ability to host large conferences, and securing WONCA 2020 in the NZICC will give us the opportunity to showcase what great hosts New Zealanders are for these 2,000 delegates,’ says Callum Mallett, general manager NZICC Operations.
