Registrations for the 2019 conference will open in May. Announcements will be made in the HiNZ eNewsletter - sign up here.


Q. My link to the registration website isn't working

This sometimes happens when our website is being accessed from behind an organisation's security firewall. We recommend you access our registration web pages from a privately-owned computer and use one of the compatible browsers listed below:

  • Internet Explorer 9 or up
  • Mozilla Firefox 5 or up (except on Windows 7)
  • Google Chrome 7 or up
  • Microsoft Edge

*We do not recommend using Safari due to information not always saving


Q. If I join HiNZ during registration do I get the member discount?

Yes. Anyone who joins HiNZ while registering for the full HiNZ conference is able to claim the member discount immediately.


Q. Do I get the $500 member discount if I register for eHealth Nursing?

No. The HiNZ member discount does not apply to the Nursing Informatics conference fee (as its registration fee is kept below $200 to make it more affordable to nurses). The HiNZ member discount of $500 applies to HiNZ Conference registrations, which are more expensive than the 1 day nursing event.


Q. I want to attend two days, which pass do I choose?

Choose the full pass which gives you access across multiple days.


Q. Which pass do speakers choose?

Speakers choose the full pass and will enter a code when completing their online registration in order to get the speaker discount.


Q. If I am a HINZ Member, and I am speaking at HINZ, do I get $500 off as a member and $500 off as a speaker? Or does just one discount apply?

The registration form allows you to select only ONE discount, per registration. So, you can choose either option. The price you end up paying is the same.


Q. I need to make changes to my registration. How do I do this?

Please email us with the changes you wish to make and we will coordinate this for you.


Q. Is there a group registration discount?

No, there is no group registration discount. There are special promotional prices for individuals who register early and who are members of various organisations


Q. If I require one invoice, can I book multiple people at the same time?

Yes, you can. Please email us and we will coordinate this for you.


Q. What are the prices for each registration type?

It depends on the date you register and whether you are a member of an affiliated organisation. Please visit the website for details on registration types and prices. 


Q. I need to get funding/leave approval before I can register but this will be after the stated deadline. Can I still get the discount?

Yes. If you need an extension, please tell us before the SuperSaver or Earlybird deadline and we will give you a link, so you still get the lower registration rate after the deadline. To request this please email us.


Q. Which days should I attend?

That depends on which topics & speakers are of interest to you. Please visit the website for details regarding the Programme:

  • Optional workshops are on 18-20 November, prior to the start of conference sessions
  • Conference sessions for HiNZ are on 20-22 November
  • Conference sessions for eHealth Nursing & eAllied Health are only on Wednesday 20 November
Q. How do I book to attend a workshop?

During the registration process you will be given the option of adding a workshop booking to your selection. Each workshop has a separate booking fee.

Q. Is the conference dinner included in my registration?

No. This is an optional extra for all delegates.


Q. Can I purchase an extra guest ticket for the conference dinner?

The conference dinner is limited to 700 attendees. If we have any dinner tickets left after delegates register, we will release guest tickets for purchase. This is unlikely to be until after the Earlybird deadline closes. If you wish to buy an extra ticket for a guest who isn't a conference delegate, please email us and we will notify you if we are able to release guest tickets.


Q. Can HiNZ help me with a travel visa application?

If you require a letter confirming your conference attendance to assist with your visit we can supply this. You need to register and pay for your registration first. After that we can supply the letter on request confirming you are registered - to arrange this please email us.


Q. Is accommodation included in the registration fee?

No, but we have negotiated cheaper rates for delegates with several local hotels. During registration you will be given information about which accommodation options are still available.


Q. I am a HiNZ member - do I need to book to attend the conference?
Yes, if you wish to attend the conference or any of the workshops then you need to register. Being a HiNZ member entitles you to a conference registration discount.


Q. My employer has an organisation membership of HiNZ. Can I claim the HiNZ member discount?

Organisations are not members of HiNZ. To be eligible for the registration discount you need to be an individual member of HiNZ, with an expiry date after 22 November 2019.


Q. Who is eligible for the student conference rate?

Only student members of HiNZ are eligible for this rate. To be eligible for student membership you must be doing more than one paper at a tertiary institution and not working in full time paid employment.


Q. I am no longer able to attend. Can I cancel or transfer my registration to a different person? 

To cancel your registration, a cancellation fee of $105 + GST will apply. Registrations are unable to be cancelled after (30 September 2019) however a substitute delegate can be arranged at any time. Please email us and request a registration transfer.
