ASPA 2023 Conference

Mahi Tahi – Working Together

27-28 November 2023, Wellington, New Zealand

The 3rd Asia-Pacific Society for Physical Activity conference took place on the 27th to 28th of November 2023 at the Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington in Wellington, New Zealand. The conference theme for 2023 was Mahi Tahi – Working Together.

The ASPA 2023 Conference was hosted alongside the Sport and Exercise Science New Zealand (SESNZ) annual conference, which took place at the same venue on the 28th and 29th of November 2023. This partnership meant that we had an extensive program on Day Two of ASPA 2023 (November 28th), including multiple parallel sessions, cross-cutting keynotes, and plenty of networking opportunities.

Conference venue 

We are excited to host the in-person conference in Wellington, New Zealand at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of WellingtonPerched on the water’s edge and surrounded by nature, Wellington is a compact, connected and vibrant capital.

Located in the middle of New Zealand with direct flights into Wellington from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fiji. Frequent flights from Auckland provides easy connectivity with the rest of Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and further afield. Wellington’s CBD is only a 15-minute drive from Wellington Airport, the longest commute you will have during your stay.

The walkable central city means that the conference venue, accommodation, dining and cultural precincts are all within short walking distance.

Wellington is surrounded by beautiful scenery and green spaces. Wellington’s waterfront is perfect for a morning run with views across the harbour or take a stroll through beautiful native bush to Mt Victoria Lookout.
