Due to the earthquake devastation of the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Christchurch the NZMBA has decided to shift its annual conference back to Auckland.

"It has certainly been a very difficult time for us to have to shift our conference from  Christchurch but  due to the events and level of damage to the central city of Christchurch there was no other choice.  We have investigated a number of other options around the country but for time and cost  this is certainly the best option," NZMBA chairman Darren Pratley said.

The venue has now been confirmed as being the Spencer on Byron which is located on the North Shore. Pratley says this hotel looks to be able to provide all the things we will need in a relaxed and professional environment.  We have been focused on ensuring that the venue provides cost-effective value for the members and also is conveniently located.

The NZMBA's conference has been always centred on providing members with great learning opportunities and international speakers that provide them with information and knowledge that assists in developing new business.  This year looks to be no different with the added value of a number of international speakers that have been secured to present.

The NZMBA also has confirmed two international speakers that will be presenting at this year's conference.

Greg Frost - Greg was one of the first mega originators in the mortgage business in the USA and has been consistently ranked by mortgage originator magazine among the top 20 mortgage originators in America.  He was also noted as being the first billion dollar loan originator in the entire US. 

Greg brings unique skills and information and strategies to assist in which brokers develop their business using practical examples and skills.  His training style is refreshing and will provide attendees with an abundance of ideas to help improve their business.  

Mike Walsh - Mike's expertise is explaining new patterns of consumer behaviour and disruptive technologies in emerging markets. His advisory work and keynote presentations provide unique insights into the growing influence of new markets on breakthrough innovation and business transformation.
