S+SNZ Conference 2020 - Unlocking New Zealand's Development

2-4 November 2020, Rotorua

Survey and Spatial New Zealand (S+SNZ) Annual Conference is the biggest CPD event of the year for surveying and spatial professionals. It invites the sharing of knowledge amongst peers, bringing together networking opportunities for all delegates and is an essential event for your professional development and connectivity to the sector.

The purpose of this event is to facilitate the creation of a memorable learning and networking experience for all delegates; enriching their conference experience with diverse opportunities and providing meaningful interactions.
Unlocking New Zealand's development is a major priority of the New Zealand Government.

The location of the conference, Rotorua (New Zealand), offers an example of the regional centres the government has in mind for development. It is also a good example of some of their Initiatives (think 1 billion trees). Survey and spatial professionals are reacting to government priorities and are ready to act on development goals. New Zealand's development is important for surveyors and spatial professionals as they know that government priorities will affect their work and income. Everyone in New Zealand is affected - the government sets national priorities and due to these priorities, survey and spatial companies working in regional centres are especially impacted.
The theme ‘Unlocking New Zealand's Development’ is timely with the choice of Rotorua as a conference location. We will aim to discuss challenges in New Zealand, which include climate change and developments outside of the main centres.
