2017 Symposium

We are excited to announce that the 2017 NZSTA Professional Development Symposium will be held as follows:

Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September, Sudima Hotel, Rotorua

The Sudima hotel group holds the distinction of being the First Accessible Hotel Group in

New Zealand, their goal being to ensure all guests can enjoy every aspect of each hotel’s facilities regardless of their individual needs. This makes them the perfect choice to host our Symposium.

The Annual General Meeting will be held during the Symposium at lunchtime on the 7th September.

We are currently finalising our keynote speakers – once they are confirmed, we will advise further details including online registration information.

Registration fees will be unchanged from 2015:


1 day 2 days
Member $150 $260
Non Member $300 $450
Student member $90 $150
Student non member $200 $350


To help with your planning, adult focused papers will be prioritised for the Thursday and paediatric focused papers on the Friday, with papers relevant to all spread across the 2 days.
