Create a connection

The Māori concept of whanaungatanga focuses on relationships, kinship and a sense of connection.

It’s about the connections created through shared experiences and working together, which provide us with a sense of belonging.

Our industry has had another difficult year, but in tough times it’s our connections with each other that keep us strong.That's why our theme for this year's competition is: whanaungatanga.
