S+SNZ Conference 2024 @ Napier War Memorial Centre, Napier, New Zealand

The annual conference of Survey and Spatial New Zealand (S+SNZ) will take place in August in Napier, on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island.

Napier was the epicentre of destruction wrought by Cyclone Gabrielle in 2023, so the theme for the 2024 event is ‘Looking Ahead in the Heartland,’ which S+SNZ says, refers “not just to the optimism and resilience of provincial New Zealand, but also provides an opportunity to discuss approaches to the challenges of climate change and disaster recovery around the country”.

Super-early bird registration is now open.
