How to become a Conference Sponsor

We invite you/your company to become a sponsor for the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Nutrition Society of New Zealand to be held in Napier, on 28th and 29th November 2019. We expect 80-100 nutrition professionals from all over New Zealand to attend the conference.

The Nutrition Society of New Zealand conference brings together some of the greatest minds in nutrition science giving you the opportunity to showcase your products and/or services to a wide range of health-focussed delegates. This conference is an opportunity for you to:

  • Increase your company exposure to a group of nutrition and health professionals that work in a range of sectors such as private practice, public health, community, education, food industry, government and research.
  • Promote your company, products and/or services to a range of nutrition professionals who on a daily basis influence consumer food and lifestyle 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. You can download a copy of our prospectus here.
