Annual Scientific Meeting – Napier 2024

April 6 - April 30

Free – $1,210.00


Time to book the ASM in your diaries. Registration is opening on 1 December 2023.
The NZAGS 2024 ASM is to be held at the Napier War Memorial Convention Centre, in Napier from 6 April to the 7 April 2024.

The NZAGS ASM 6/7 April, 2024.  

You are invited to attend the New Zealand Association of General Surgeons (NZAGS) Annual Conference to be held from 6th and 7th April, 2024, at the Napier War Memorial Centre, Napier.

Hawke’s Bay is calling you!  It’s our pleasure to invite you to attend the 2024 Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Association of General Surgeons, which is being held at the Napier War Memorial Centre situated on the beautiful and sunny Marine Parade in the heart of art deco country. The registrars’ SET Training Day will be held on Friday 5th of April and the conference itself follows on the weekend of 6th and 7th of April, 2024.

The health care system is in a state of flux at present, but what binds us as a surgical community is the clinical networking and common interactions to serve our patients and the profession as a whole. Our theme this year reflects our reality of everyone being in this together and the conference is titled: He waka eke noa.

Join us to hear from local and international colleagues on a wide range of topics which will be of interest to all. Take this opportunity to interact with your colleagues kanohi ki te kanohi / face to face, to strengthen your clinical networks in this ever-changing environment.

The conference dinner on Saturday will be at the celebrated and historic Mission Estate – make sure you secure your ticket!

And if it’s been a while since you’ve been to our corner of the motu, consider adding a couple of days to your trip to enjoy the art deco capital and surrounding vineyard cellar doors.  We look forward to welcoming you.

Conveners: Jevon Puckett, James Tan, Bevan Jenkins
