Dunedin in contention for major conference
By Chris Morris
Dunedin appears to have the frontrunning in a two-city race to host a major international botanic garden conservation conference, which could bring hundreds of experts – and millions of dollars – to the city.
The council would be expected to cover the estimated $800,000 cost of hosting the event, but would aim to make a small projected profit of $15,000 thanks to sponsorship agreements and subscription payments from participants.
