The opening address was to be given by New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Sport & Recreation, the Hon Grant Robertson, with a closing address from Australasian sports leader and Sport NZ CEO, Raelene Castle. 
Along with our partners at Dunedin Venues Management Ltd and Anderson Lloyd, we remain committed to staging this event with the Otago community.
