MUSAC at NASDAP in Hastings

It was our pleasure to sponsor the biennial NASDAP conference held in Hastings at the Opera House last week. The venue and conference management was fantastic. We were able to access wireless broadband from the iMac on the MUSAC stand and Mal exploited the opportunity to do a few impromptu demonstrations of our web product. Seemed to be plenty of nodding from those circled around the computer.

We had plenty of give-aways - watch this space for an upcoming competition where you can use some of them to win your school some cash for end-of-year prize giving!

Furnware hosted everyone on Wednesday night with a tour of the factory and a few quiet drinks with Ian Smith - former New Zealand wicket keeper and now commentator with Sky Sport - yep, Ian now has a t-shirt too. Great team at Furnware and a fantastic New Zealand manufactured product. Thanks Furnware!

One couldn't visit the Bay without a trip around a few wineries. We visited Mission Estate, Matariki and Unison wineries. Got the low-down on the Gimblett gravels and superb tastings. Most credit cards took a hammering! Rude not to really.

Thursday was conference dinner night. Good meal and danced the night away to a great local band The Naked Gun.

We had a great time catching up with customers and hope to be able to sponsor a few local NASDAP conferences next year. Otago team have us lined up for Cromwell 9-10 September 2010. See you there!
