How to become a Conference Sponsor

We invite you/your company to become a sponsor for the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Nutrition Society of New Zealand to be held at Massey University, Albany on 29th and 30th November 2018. We expect 100-140 nutrition professionals from all over New Zealand to attend the conference.

The Nutrition Society Conference brings together a range of nutrition professionals giving you the opportunity to showcase and share your products and key messages to a wide range of delegates. This Conference is an opportunity for you to:

  • Increase your company exposure to a group of nutrition professionals that work in a range of sectors such as private practice, public health, food industry, government and research
  • Promote your company and products to a range of nutrition professionals who on a daily basis participate in conversations around healthy food choices
  • Network with delegates face-to-face during the breaks and social functions

The conference is offering a number of sponsorship packages designed to provide maximum coverage during the conference and associated activities – please see our prospectus for details.
