Dunedin is located on the east coast of the South Island and is easily accessible for everyone. With regular daily flights from all major cities in New Zealand, and regular direct flights from Brisbane, Australia our connectivity internationally remains hassle free. But don’t just fly here, the South is best seen by road and we are easy to drive, bus, boat and even train to via one of the World’s Great Train Trips, the Taieri Gorge.

This combined with Dunedin’s strength and focus in the ICT and medical/health technology sectors presents new opportunities for conferences in the city. Dunedin also has a strong Arts and Culture scene highlighted by the recent designation of a UNESCO City of Literature status.
