Social Program

Please note that if you do not select social function tickets during the registration process (even when included in the registration cost), we may not be able to accommodate your request for tickets on site. We are required to give final numbers in advance of the meeting, and the earlier we are advised the better. Please check your registration confirmation carefully for your selections, and let the Conference Managers know if changes are required. 

Welcome Function

Conference Dinner

Christchurch Art Gallery
Te Puna o Waiwhetū

Friday October 29 | 7pm until late
Tickets included in full registration. 
Additional tickets $120 per person.

Join us for the social highlight of the ASM – the 2021 Conference Dinner. Embracing our theme “Whakaroa”, we are delighted to showcase dishes that feature vegetarian, plant-based, sustainable and locally sourced food as the main ingredients, and not just the “dietary special”. Our carefully selected caterers have thoughtfully crafted a menu of canapes, platters, main course choices and desserts that will feed and nourish your soul and appetite. Entertainment provided by local band, Oval Office.

Junior ASM

Back by popular demand, on-site childcare facilities will be available for all  “junior delegates” who will be accompanying you on your trip to Christchurch, but may find the scientific content of the plenary sessions a little beyond their current attention span….

While you relax and engage with your fellow anaesthetists, industry and enjoy some outstanding presentations from our invited speakers, locally sourced qualified or experienced nannies and educators will be in charge of the daily “Junior ASM”. All our carers are police and reference checked and all nanny: children childcare ratios will be in line with Ministry of Education guidelines. Activities will be mainly based within and around the Christchurch Town Hall and will include arts and crafts, games, and other events tailored to the age of the children.

Half and full day rates are available.

Morning and afternoon teas supplied. Rates do not include lunch.  Available all day on Thursday and Friday, and Saturday morning.

Half Day Rate: $20
Full Day Rate: $35
