New organiser for the RFUANZ Conference and Exhibition

Dear Members, Exhibitors and Sponsors,

As you will know Candice Van Dyk has convened and organised the more recent Radio Frequency Users Association of New Zealand conferences.  Candice has performed a superb job but unfortunately she is no longer able to continue.  This together with the fact that RFUANZ has grown significantly over the years have encouraged us, the Committee, to take the following step as we believe the Annual Conference to be a most necessary event for our Industry.

The Radio Frequency Users Association of New Zealand is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Westwick Farrow Media for the ongoing organisation of the Conference and Exhibition.

Westwick Farrow Media is a well known conference organiser in the Wireless Communications Industry and has been providing a very successful and growing conference in Australia in association with our Australian counterpart ARCIA.

The new conference will be known as Comms Connect NZ and will be organised by Westwick Farrow Media in association with RFUANZ.  The conference will continue to address topics and developments specific for the New Zealand market but at the same time it will benefit from the international contacts developed in Australia.

We would like to introduce you to Mr Paul Davis from Westwick Farrow Media and you can look forward to direct contact from Paul and his team over the ensuing months regarding next years conference.

RFUANZ will continue to organise the Gala Dinner and Awards Night during which we will recognise those individuals who have made a special contribution to our industry. The Dinner will be held at the first night of the conference.

We believe this will continue to enhance the New Zealand Mobile Radio Industry and benefit Spectrum users as well as further promote the RFUANZ presence with Government.  This in turn leads to a closer liaison and involvement with future Government Spectrum decisions.

In closing we wish to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have contributed to RFUANZ by way of sponsorship, exhibits, speaking and of course attendance.  We look forward to seeing you at our next conference!

David Thomson
Chairman, RFUANZ Committee
