On behalf of the organising committee, it is my pleasure to announce registrations are now open for the Annual Scientific Meeting in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand beginning at 1pm on Thursday 2 May 2024 and finishing at 1pm on Saturday 4 May. The conference website will be the main hub for all details including abstract submission, conference grant applications and registrations. Please follow the link where you will find all details including a draft programme:

Registrations are also now open for the Special Interest Days for Diabetes Nurses, Diabetes Registrars, Dietitians and the Diabetes in Pregnancy group on Wednesday 1st May 2024.
The NZSSD Executive is also delighted to offer conference grants to provide further assistance to attend the ASM to those members who do not have dedicated CME funds (if applying you will be asked to declare this). You must be a member of NZSSD for at least one year to apply and we strongly encourage you to do so. Applications for this will close with the early-bird closing date. This is a limited fund and will be allocated based on number of applicants and level of involvement with the meeting.
Both the ASM and SIG meetings will be in-person only events with no virtual attendance option. Hosting a hybrid meeting with a dedicated platform significantly increases the registration fee and so this was not considered.
Social functions are an integral part of the conference; our ASM industry soiree will be held with the industry exhibition area on Thursday 2 May, our gala dinner will be held on Friday 3 May in the Waitaki Room at Te Pae. The 2024 theme is "Sport 1974” – it is 50 years since the Commonwealth Games were held in Christchurch.
The call for abstracts is also open and we look forward to receiving your submissions. This is also done via the conference website.
We are also calling for nominations for the Bob Smith Lecture and this is done via the NZSSD website.
We look forward to seeing you in Ōtautahi Christchurch next May.
NZSSD ASM 2024 Convenor
