The Canterbury/Westland Branch are keen once again to host the 2021 New Zealand Collision Repair Association annual conference which will be held from Friday 16th April to Saturday 17th April 2021 at the Marlborough Convention Centre, Blenheim.
The Marlborough Convention Centre in Blenheim enjoys the perfect mix of business and pleasure amidst world-class scenery and purpose built conferencing facilities. The venue is also within easy walking distance of various accommodation options and downtown Blenheim. Blenheim is situated in the heart of wine-growing Marlborough and is one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand.
As usual the programme has been designed to maximise opportunities exhibitors have with the delegates. Trade stand opportunities are limited and will receive maximum exposure through a series of events in the Exhibitors area.

We have a range of sponsorship packages to suit you, we have outlined below the various options available. Sponsorship plays a critical role in ensuring the success of our event and we invite you to be part of our conference and you can be assured that we will do our best to give all sponsors and exhibitors value for their contribution.
We will also be providing the opportunity for businesses to exhibit products, services, management systems, etc.
All breaks, lunches etc will be ‘held in the exhibitors’ area to ensure that conference attendees have ample opportunity to renew acquaintances and meet potential suppliers.
