Our Sponsors

We wish to acknowledge our deep appreciation of our Sponsors. Our Sponsors are vital to the success of the WA-Summit which is held every two years. The WA-Summit is run as a non-profit event, so every sponsorship dollar goes to reducing the registration fees for the Delegates. For example, at the WA-Summit in 2018, a last minute sponsorship of the Welcome Cocktail function meant that Delegates who had chosen to attend that function each received a refund at the event.

The administrative professionals who attend as Delegates (no more than three per country) often do so at their own cost, even though they are representing the administrative professionals from their country. To ensure we get the highest possible attendance from around the world, it is essential that we keep the registration costs of each event as low as possible.

The lower the costs the more potential there is for a larger number of countries to attend. In Frankfurt, Germany we had 22 countries and 41 Delegates. For the WA-Summit 2020 we are anticipating 15 – 20 countries in New Zealand. We have already had informal advice from: several countries in Europe, Angola, United States of America, Brazil, Canada, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, United Kingdom, Australia, Republic of the Congo and of course New Zealand of their intention to attend.

The WA-Summit Advisory Council truly appreciates AAPNZ’s willingness to host the 11th WA-Summit 2020; 20 years after they hosted the 4th WA-Summit (then called the International Secretarial Summit) in 2000, also in Wellington. The on-the-ground work undertaken by the host country to help in sourcing venues, accommodation, etc is in-valuable. We thank AAPNZ for their support.
