PANZ sets new conference date; BookUp scheduled for June

The Publishers Association of New Zealand Te Rau o Tākupu (PANZ) has announced the rescheduled PANZ International Conference is due to be held at Cliftons in Auckland on Friday, 4 March.

‘The program is almost finalised and the venue is raring to go, but unfortunately the unpredictability of the Omicron situation is proving less straightforward to work around,’ said PANZ association director Catriona Ferguson in an update to members.

‘We’re watching events closely and keeping our fingers and toes crossed that we’ll be able to go ahead as planned.’

In Australia, the Australian Publishers Association has announced that the second annual BookUp conference is scheduled for Thursday, 9 June at ICC Sydney, with the 2022 Australian Book Industry Awards to take place at the same venue on the same date. Nominations for the awards close midnight AEST Monday, 14 February.
