OCIES 2018: Packing list

Wellington is expecting a cold snap next week. It will be cold, wet and very windy! For those traveling from warmer climates, make sure you pack your winter woolies, a good jacket and an umbrella. The weather certainly won’t dampen what will be a great week ahead.  We look forward to seeing you there!
