Registrations Now Open! NZHIT Grand Hall Event, Parliament, Wellington

March 8, 2022
The Grand Hall, Parliament Buildings, Wellington


Was to be held on 29 September 2021, The Grand Hall Parliament Buildings, Wellington

Due to the Delta variant COVID-19 outbreak, and the uncertainty of alert levels, we are very sorry to have to inform you that we have had to make the regrettable decision to postpone our biggest and most exciting event of the year: The Grand Hall

However, the show must go on and we are currently working on new dates and lining our speakers up again.

New date to be announced soon! 

Registrations will remain open. To register click below.


If you were flying we are aware that Air New Zealand have a travel flexibility policy, therefore you can either claim a flight credit or hold off until our new date is announced and rebook your destination to Wellington through their website.


If you have booked with one of the hotels we negotiated corporate rates with, this booking can be cancelled free of charge. We will be re-negotiating the special corporate rates for you as soon as we have the new date and will provide links to those as soon as we can.

The Health and Disability Sector Reforms:
What do they mean for the Digital Health Industry? 
NZ Health IT (NZHIT) are bringing this event to the Grand Hall to provide members, stakeholders, policymakers, and politicians the opportunity to hear from key sector leaders about what the Health and Disability Sector Reforms will mean for the Digital Health Sector.
