Just a few days to go until we're underway so we've added some important registration and function info to ensure you get the most out of your DrupalSouth experience.. Additional venue and conference information will be provided after the keynote address on Saturday 15 February.
A reminder that the conference venue has moved from the Amora hotel to Te Papa Tongarewa - the Museum of New Zealand. The Museum is located on the Wellington waterfront and is a short 5-10 minute walk from the Amora.
Te Papa is approx. 21min by bus from the Wellington airport. The 91 bus ("Airport Flyer") departs every 10-20 minutes from the airport.

The Te Papa website includes information on travel options to the venue, parking and conference spaces. We encourage you to become familiar with Te Papa as it is relatively large. There will be signs and venue staff who can direct you to conference rooms if required.
