DWN17 Connect


DWN17 Connect | 11th – 12th May 2017 | Rydges Queenstown

Dairy Women’s Network’s 2017 annual conference is in iconic Queenstown on 11-12 May.

Dubbed DWN17, delegates will be treated to the hospitality of Rydges Lakeland Resort on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. The Resort is the ideal base from which to explore the breathtaking landscapes and world-class visitor attractions of Queenstown.

The DWN17 theme, ‘Connect’, sets the tone for two days of inspiring and high profile keynote speakers, and invaluable workshops, both on and off site.

Join us to learn new skills, expand your toolkit, and take the opportunity to connect with like-minded women in one of New Zealand’s premium tourist destinations.
