Registration is now open for APNIC 58 in Te Whanganui a Tara Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand from 30 August to 6 September 2024 at the Tākina Wellington Convention & Exhibition Centre. APNIC 58 is proudly hosted by InternetNZ.

APNIC 58’s technical workshops will be held from 30 August to 2 September 2024 and will provide participants with practical training on network security and network automation.

The workshops will be followed by partner events — the Pacific Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2024 on 2 and 3 September 2024 and the InternetNZ Registrar Day on 4 September 2024. 

The conference, running from 4 to 6 September 2024, brings together network operators, industry leaders and other interested parties from around the region and the world to learn, share their experiences, and build relationships with their peers.

As well as technical sessions on topics such as security, IPv6, and networking, APNIC 58 will include community-driven Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings and will conclude with the APNIC Members Meeting. 

APNIC will also farewell Director General Paul Wilson during the conference.
