special events

In addition to our Conference schedule, we are providing our delegates multiple social engagements. These social events are a great opportunity to connect and catch up with some fellow industry folk whom normally you can’t manage to align your rosters to do so. It is also a fantastic way to get your partners involved and allow the “other-halves” to get involved in the industry. AMPI 2019 have two main social events, plus the AGM. The conference will kick start with the Welcome Reception, presented by Smit Lamnalco, on the Monday evening, this will be an opportunity to catch up and also explore the Exhibition space. Conference on Friday morning may be a little challenging after our Gala Dinner on Thursday night. This night will be one not to be missed
