Distinction Hotel and Conference Centre

The 2010 50th Anniversary Conference will be held at the Distinction Hotel and Conference Centre in New Zealand’s tourist mecca, Rotorua.

Distinction Rotorua is situated on Fenton Street, just seconds away from the Central Business District and close to the famous Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve, the beautiful mature Redwood Forest and the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute or Te Puia. If you are more inclined to relax with a game of golf, then directly across the road is Rotorua’s most prestigeous Golf Course (Arikkapakapa).

Excellent shopping, tourist activities and nightlife are all with a 5 minute drive of the hotel.


There are a number of accommodation options available, and NZCS has negotiated special conference rates for delegates.  Bookings are to be made directly with the accommodation provider.  To secure the special conference rate, please advise them of the reservation code shown below when booking. Credit card details are necessary to confirm your reservation.

Accommodation cannot be guaranteed after 15 August 2010, so please book early to secure your room.

All fees include GST and are in $NZ.
