Kia ora tātou, haere mai ki Te Whanganui a Tara. Welcome all to Wellington. 

It’s been ten years since our last conference in Wellington. During this time we’ve had two guideline reviews and done major work implementing the best available evidence into our training programmes. Our scientific meetings have grown over the past decade, and at NZ Resus 2018 – Coming of Age we look to further extend our appeal with content for carers both in pre-hospital and advanced settings. NZ Resus 2018 – Coming of Age will also celebrate the first 21 years of the New Zealand Resuscitation Council.

This is a really exciting time for us, and we’ll certainly make time to honour the huge contribution that so many have made to our successes and recognition as New Zealand’s authority in resuscitation and first aid. Wellington, our destination, is an incredible small city, named by Lonely Planet as ‘the coolest little capital in the world’.

Te Papa Tongarewa, the National Museum of New Zealand, is our conference venue – a New Zealand icon right on Wellington’s lively waterfront. We hope that you make the time to enjoy the national treasures within Te Papa’s collections, visit Wellington’s other world-class museums, explore the funky Cuba quarter, or sip the famous coffee and local brews during your Wellington experience.

Come join us in the ‘Coolest Little Capital in the World’

With a vibrant arts scene, fabulous café and restaurant culture nestled around the stunning waterfront, it must be one of the easiest cities in the world to get around on foot.

Wellington enjoys more cafes, bars and restaurants than New York City, and its coffee and craft beer producers are internationally recognised.

A creative, cosmopolitan city, Wellington combines the sophistication of a capital with the warmth and personality of a village.
