Survey and Spatial NZ’s Annual Conference is the biggest CPD event of the year. It invites sharing of knowledge amongst surveying and spatial peers, bringing together networking opportunities for all delegates. It is an essential event for your professional development and connectivity to the sector.

The chosen theme for this year’s conference is titled 'Marking the Journey, Hāpaia’. Our theme relates to the journey of surveying and spatial professionals throughout their career - the journey of a project through to completion, the journey of data from capture to deliverables, and the professional development journey and of course, coming full circle back to the University of Otago School of Surveying which will be celebrating its 60th anniversary. 

This is an opportunity for all S+SNZ members and related professionals to present their valued work at the conference and we welcome presentations related to the broad theme.

The call for abstracts, speakers and papers is now open.

Date: 30 August – 1 September 2023
Place & Venue: Otago University, Dunedin.
