2024 Seaweed Summit

Registrations are now open!

The 2024 Seaweed Summit will be held at the Rutherford Hotel in Nelson on 11th October 2024.  


Our 2024 programme is currently being developed, following feedback on last year’s session.  If you have suggestions or would like to present, please send us an email.  The 2024 programme will be finalised by 7th September 2024. Check our website or Linked in for updates.

Seeking Sponsors

We are looking for sponsors to support this event. If you would like to know more, please send us an email.


Whilst some members asked for a change in venue, we purposely like to follow the AQNZ conference which will be held just before our seaweed event, as there are many overlapping areas of interest. You can register to attend the AQNZ Conference here.

Student Poster Session

We welcome submissions for our Student Poster Session which will be held at the Summit.  Find more information on the Student Poster session here.

There are poster prizes of $1,000 for the winner and $500 for the runner up, thanks to the generous support of Jill Bradley.
