AUCKLAND will host the 5th International Safer Roads Conference and as New Zealand’s largest city, it is also the international gateway to the rest of the country.
Located in the North Island, Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, earning this place the nickname “City of Sails”.
Renown as New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city, imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanting holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland.
