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.

2021 Annual Conference
The 2021 conference was a joint effort with the Australian Skeptics. Due to the Covid epidemic, we live-streamed the event. There were many interesting and thought-provoking speakers, and it was well-attended with about 250 skeptics from Australia and New Zealand. The conference talks are also be available to watch online.
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.
