On Site Delegate Information

Please find information below that might be of assistance when planning your journey to, and attendance at, the New Zealand Anaesthesia ASM 2017 in Rotorua.

Meeting App

The NZ Anaesthesia ASM 2017 will employ a Meeting App. The meeting app is a simple web-based system that utilises the browser on your mobile device, and includes the meeting programme, speaker biographies and talk summaries, abstract submissions, sponsor and exhibitor listings, the ability to provide live feedback or ask questions during each plenary session, and will enable you to receive any relevant alerts or news items to keep you updated during the course of the meeting.

To download the app onto your mobile device, open the URL link below. 

Once downloaded, you are able to ‘add it to your homescreen’ using your web-browser settings.

You will have been emailed your personalised login details. Some functions of the app are only available for users who are logged in (such as messaging, reviewing the attendee list, and updating your profile photo). If you have not received this email, please contact the Conference Managers to request a copy –

If you have any issues accessing the app, please let us know. Additionally, staff at the registration desk will be able to provide on site assistance as required.
