The theme of the next IAM NZ conference is The Journey of Change. In short, the driving forces of technology have changed the way we ride and drive. Electric cars, automated braking systems, reversing cameras are just a few things that are influencing road safety and skills. One might question the relevance of enhanced skills from following the disciplines of Roadcraft. Whether behind a steering wheel or handlebars, your attitude to others on the road will be your strength. Come join us for a fun weekend of discussion and debate around these themes, and be part of influencing IAM NZ’s future.
The conference is from 9 am on Saturday 24 February 2018 to 12 noon Sunday 25 February 2018. It will be based in the Lakeview Room, Lakeland Resort, 282 Lake Terrace, Taupo. Registrations are now closed and no refunds of the Conference Registration will be given. However, you can transfer your reservation to another IAM NZ fully paid up member.
The Registration cost includes
- attendance at all sessions on Saturday & Sunday morning, including the first aid training;
- three rides on the Skyline Luge, Rotorua on Saturday; and

To allow flexibility to manage your own budget and requirements, arrangements for accommodation, all breakfasts, insurance and transport costs are your own responsibility and cost. Any alcohol purchases are at your own cost.
The IAM NZ Annual General Meeting is scheduled on Sunday 25 February 2018 at 10am, prior to the prize draw winners announcements. Prize draw tickets can be purchased for $2 each from your local group chair.
In addition, IAM NZ has teamed up with MotoTT to provide members with access to Taupo’s Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park, on Friday 23 February 2018, the day before the conference. This Motorsport Park is New Zealand’s Premier motorsport and driver training facility and there will be laps for cars and motorbikes. The cost of the track day is $150 and will be payable directly to MotoTT, once your IAM NZ subscription is confirmed as paid. MotoTT trackdays are designed to be a fun, non-competitive environment for you to enjoy riding your bike or driving your car in a safe environment and to practice your riding/driving skills. Go as fast or as slow as you like.
