About this event

Meet the team supporting UC academics to bid for and bring conferences to Ōtautahi Christchurch - Tourism New Zealand, ChristchurchNZ, and Te Pae (Christchurch Convention Centre). Join us for a coffee at the UC conferencing pop up expo and get all your conferencing questions answered. You’ll also be able to take a sneak peek at Te Pae through a virtual reality (VR) head set.

Quick fire speaker sessions will outline how to bid and what support the team offers and Professional Conference Organisers will be there to meet you and answer any questions you have.

Conferences create invaluable opportunities for UC to further grow global connections and networks. They are an opportunity for our leading academics to showcase their knowledge and profile their sector, department and the university. Conferences are shown to increase citations, networking opportunities and global university rankings far beyond the conference itself.

Invite a colleague and let us know you’re coming by registering above.

Organiser of UC Conferencing pop up expo - join us for coffee

Founded in 1873, in Ōtautahi Christchurch, the University of Canterbury | Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha (UC) has an international reputation for academic excellence in teaching and research.

People come first at the University of Canterbury, reflecting our intrinsic values: whanaungatanga, manaakitanga and tiakitanga. These values are rooted in trust, care and reciprocity, and were embedded over generations of Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Ngāi Tahu presence in the region. In fact, in 1861 Pita Te Hori, the first Upoko of Ngāi Tūāhuriri, instructed the founders of Ōtautahi: “kia atawhai ki te iwi – be kind to your people.” Today, these words underpin the relationships we foster amongst our students, staff and community. We are proud to open our doors to students and staff throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and the world, welcoming everyone to learn from one another and contribute to our diverse and flourishing community. The University of Canterbury is a place for everyone.

The university has an undivided focus on people, research, education and engagement to carry us forward to our 150th anniversary and beyond.

UC offers a unique, world-class learning experience that gives UC graduates a competitive edge in an increasingly challenging, dynamic and complex world – UC students graduate with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to make a difference.

The University’s research-active lecturers and academics are committed to deploying their expertise and knowledge, and are active in partnering with others to advance civic purpose and foster public good.
