Food & Drinks • Photo Booth • Live Entertainment • Prizes to be won!

After the last couple of years of feeling like we've been down the rabbit hole, our beloved Welcome Function is back bigger than ever. The theme for 2022 is Enchanted Wonderland .  

We hope to help everyone feel a sense of connection, wonderment, and whimsy.

The Welcome Function is a wonderful way to network and relax after a big first day of the conference, or if you prefer, to shred some moves on the dancefloor!

It has become a must-not-miss event filled with good company,  great food and drinks, live entertainment and a DJ and, of course, plenty of chances to win some fantastic prizes.  

We are SUPER excited to see you at our favourite part of the event: the #2022NVC Welcome Function!
