Can’t attend this year?

NZGS wishes you could join us in person at the 2021 Symposium but appreciates that your circumstances may have been affected by COVID. So, for this year’s Symposium a selected virtual option has been put together to give you access to a portion of each day’s programme.

Courtesy of Sponsor Rocscience, the virtual keynote recordings will be made available to NZGS members after the event concludes through the NZGS website.

The virtual options give you live time access to the keynote sessions with live Q&A as well as some special sessions. You can sign up for just one day or both days. As an individual or as a company office.

Those registered will receive access to the event stream a day or two prior to the Symposium.
