Christchurch, New Zealand
and Virtual Livestream

Organised by the New Zealand Branch


The 2023 annual conference is being organised by the New Zealand Branch. We are returning to the usual in-person interactive format, but there will be opportunities to join the conference online for those not able to travel.  We expect participants to join us from throughout the world at the fantastic new University of Canterbury Students Union building. Our focus will be on providing the best interactive experience possible, with opportunities to mingle and interact with other participants both in person and online.  

We are lining up an impressive array of Keynote Speakers dealing with topical and important issues related to the theme of the conference.  More details will come out soon, but in the meantime please mark your calendar for these key dates.
