Dear Friends and Colleagues

The SEO’s Bay of Plenty region would love to see you at our conference in Rotorua next year. It will be held at the Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre, which is close to our accommodation as well as shopping, bars, restaurants and the Rotorua lakefront.

Our conference theme is ‘Get Smart’. Take CONTROL of your life and get rid of the KAOS that surrounds you. Smart does not mean perfect. Like Maxwell Smart, we all have much to learn in order to Get Smart.  So, if we have the right resources and skills, and maybe even a little bit of luck, we can be successful and avert disaster.  Our conference is programmed to show you all kinds of gadgets and tools to help you Get Smart in all facets of your professional and private life.

While you are here you might want to consider staying an extra day or two to explore some of the many attractions Rotorua has to offer. The conference will be during the second week of the July school holidays – 18-20 July 2018. So mark these dates in your calendar and convince the Chief that this event is critical professional development for you.

We look forward to hosting you and remember, Rotorua is not just a great tourist destination, it’s also a great place to learn.

See you there
