Join us at the second annual
Life Sciences Summit: True science, real change.

BioTechNZ and NZTech are delighted to once more unite the life sciences community to showcase our high impact sector, and highlight the New Zealand-born life science solutions that are solving some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Don’t miss this two day conference featuring keynote presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities designed to supercharge the growth and impact of life sciences in New Zealand, and realise the potential of this incredible community.

Summit highlights include

Global thought leadership and expert industry insights.

Future needs and trends for Aotearoa’s biotech sector.

Showcasing current research, new innovation and commercialisation opportunities.

Two days of keynotes, panel discussions and networking opportunities.


The Life Sciences Summit showcases both traditional and modern biotech, and in 2024, the focus will be on what New Zealand needs to become a high wage economy and a global leader in biotech — our top biotech exporters introduced more than $1 billion in revenue into Aotearoa’s economy in 2023 — so we’re well on the way!
