Trades Opening & Welcome Function

Our trade exhibitors are solidly supporting the NZSSA and the sterilising industry of New Zealand. The trade opening is a good informal way to start the conference and identify which exhibitors are there. Make sure you are there to see what’s new and make the most of comparing products and broadening your understanding of the products and their purpose.
