Our annual conference is one of the most entertaining and educational meetings around, usually covering a broad range of topics and with a number of interesting or amusing social activities. It is usually held in November or December, and tends to alternate between North Island and South Island venues.

The 2019 conference was the last pre-pandemic in-person conference, held in Christchurch at The Great Hall, part of Canterbury University. The conference featured international guests – the hosts of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast, and also noted skeptics Susan Gerbic and Mark Edward.
