Partner Programme

ITx Rutherford Partner and Family Programme

PartnersPartner and Family Programme

This year ITx Rutherford is in awesome Nelson, New Zealand. Nelson is one of NZ's best destinations for a bit of R&R - whether that means relaxing in warm weather, or getting out amongst it as one of the country's best tourist fun spots.

ITx Rutherford is during the school holidays, so lots of delegates are bringing partners or families. We've organised various activities suitable for either partners or families so while you're at conference, they can head out in a group with others. Then why not stay the weekend?

What is it?

We're organising various group activities for partners and families, from a sensual relaxing spa treatment, 4-wheel bike adventures, tours of the WOW museum, a nice winery lunch and much more.

Most activities are on Thursday and Friday, however partners can also come to the Innovation Tour on Wednesday afternoon (subject to space).


The Itinerary for the Partner and Family Programme will be available shortly.

Alternatively, make your own itinerary! We'll have an i-site activity organiser on-site who can help plan activities for you.

Who can go?

Anyone accompanying an ITx Rutherford delegate to Nelson :).

Some activities might be more suited to families and others to adults. We'll let you know if there's an age restriction.

What does it cost?

We'll provide free transport for most activities and some activities are free. We'll let you know if there's a registration cost involved for others (usually payable directly to the activity).

We've negotiated a discounted rate for some of the paid activities.


An opportunity to register for activities will be emailed to conference delegates shortly.
