Symposium 2017 - a practical information extravaganza!
- By Dementia Auckland
Our annual Symposium, sponsored by Westpac, took place on Sunday the 27th of August at Waipuna Hotel & Conference Centre. With a theme of Practical Information, it was jam packed full of just that! Everyone who attended gained some fantastic knowledge from our speakers, and we loved meeting so many people who are affected by or involved with dementia in some way.
Thank you to everyone who attended, to Waipuna Hotel & Conference Centre for hosting us so well, and to our four incredible speakers. In particular, thank you to our amazing sponsor, Westpac - we could not hold this event without you, and we are so grateful for your support.
