JOINT NEW ZEALAND & AUSTRALIAN ACOUSTICAL SOCIETIES CONFERENCE
THE NATURE OF ACOUSTICS
31 OCT – 2 NOV 2022, TE PAPA, WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
WELCOME TO WELLINGTON!
It is my pleasure to invite you to the Acoustical Society of New Zealand (ASNZ) and Australian Acoustical Society (AAS) Joint Conference, to be held at Te Papa Tongarewa Museum in Wellington New Zealand, from 31 October – 2 November 2022.
Acoustics 2022 will provide a unique opportunity for manufacturers and suppliers to showcase the latest developments in acoustic instrumentation, software and noise and vibration control products.
Surrounded by nature and fueled by creative energy, Wellington is a compact city with a powerful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine. Fuel your visit with strong coffee and world-class craft beer – Wellingtonians are masters of casual dining, with plenty of great restaurants, night markets and food trucks.
On the waterfront itself you’ll find Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, New Zealand’s national museum. Te Papa, as it’s colloquially known, means ‘our place’ and is one of the best interactive museums in the world.
It is an iconic New Zealand building, right in the heart of the capital city. It is easily accessible by international and domestic flights into Wellington airport, which is only a short 15 min drive from the venue.
On behalf of the Acoustics 2022 Organising Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Wellington in November and hope that the conference gives you an opportunity to strengthen your existing networks and that you leave with great memories, fresh ideas, and new friendships.
We encourage you to save the dates in your calendar and register your expression of interest today to be kept up to date with the latest information and program news.

TE PAPA, WELLINGTON
This national museum is a must-do, with six storeys of cutting-edge interactive exhibitions housed in an architectural wonder of a building.
But if the phrase 'national museum' conjures images of dusty artefacts in glass cases, you might not have been to Te Papa yet. Te Papa's clever, contemporary and bicultural approach puts it in a league of its own
Visit the home of movie-making magic in the heart of Wellywood. Tucked away in Miramar, a short drive from Wellington’s city centre, Weta Workshop crafts physical effects for some of the world’s most renowned films and TV shows.
The world’s first fully-fenced ecosanctuary, Zealandia is an incredible slice of wilderness isn’t what you’d expect to find a few minutes’ drive from the central city, but Wellington is all about the unexpected.
