This year our conference will focus on attracting, retaining and developing our workforce to strengthen the region's opportunity for growth. 

With the seasonal labour shortage declared in Tasman last week, and Nelson Tasman having the lowest unemployment rate across the country, it is critical for our region's businesses to have clear plans and strategies in place to develop their workforce to enable economic growth. The Chamber has identified this as top priority for our region, so you won't want to miss this one-day event.

This year Aspire will take on a new format, with a keynote speaker and two interactive panel sessions hosted by a moderator, providing you with the opportunity to contribute to the discussion and, ultimately, some solutions.
