NZNOG 2023 is being held at the Rydges Hotel, Rotorua.

Conference Venue - Rydges Hotel

Note that Rotorua previously had a Rydges on Fenton St. The conference venue + primary accomodation is at the current Rydges on Tryon St.

We have secured a delegate rate for the conference attendees - this is available until Feb 20, 2023.

Special NZNOG room rates have a block reserved, however this will be released on a monthly basis prior to the conference. We suggest booking early if you want to stay at the conference venue itself, as this hotel can be busy in March.

  • A contact number/email and credit card must be provided.
  • Guests are responsible for payment of the room direct to the hotel.
  • If cancellation/postponement is required due to Covid-19 lockdowns or restrictions, no penalty will be charged
