ChristchurchNZ Business Events has won the bid for the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) Conference in 2026.
The five-day event is expected to attract 800 to 1000 delegates from around the world, at Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre.
With support from the University of Canterbury, Tourism New Zealand, and ChristchurchNZ Business Events, the Australasian affiliate of the International Association of Geomorphologists aims at showcasing the country’s landscapes and research in the field.
Tourism New Zealand General Manager NZ and Business Events Bjoern Spreitzer says: “New Zealand’s expertise in geoscience, together with the ‘natural laboratory’ of our landscapes and our strong event infrastructure and support, makes us an excellent destination for business events in this field. Hosting events like the IAG Conference will both showcase New Zealand research and enhance local knowledge.”
