Visa Wellington On a Plate is New Zealand's biggest and tastiest food festival, with more than 160 events and 310 venues hosting fine-dining, burger and cocktail specials all over the capital city.

For the first time, the annual food festival had Wellington in its thrall for an entire month – but the communications planning went well beyond August, as Marketing and Communications Manager Melissa Davey will tell you.

Join us for a reflective journey through this year’s campaign, presented by one of the creative communication minds behind WOAP 2019.

For this special event, we’re welcoming both industry professionals and students studying marketing, communications or related subjects. This is an opportunity for experienced comms people to meet with future professionals, and for students to learn more about a career in communications.

If you're a student but not a PRINZ member, please email violet@prinz.org.nz to book your ticket with a special discount.
