Welcome to the premier insurance law conference in New Zealand.

We invite you to join us for the 2024 NZILA Conference as we return to Christchurch.

The theme of the conference is Regeneration | Whakahounga, which reflects the reconstruction and transformation that has occurred in Christchurch following the earthquakes.

This conference will blend the traditional, yet ever popular, presentations with new elements and thought-provoking sessions which align with this year’s theme and the changing dynamics of the insurance law industry.

The social programme will offer plenty of networking opportunities and showcase the regeneration of Christchurch.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ōtautahi Christchurch.
