Over the past 10 days, the #GSS2018 organising committee has been together in Auckland. Here with #GSS2018 Chair Mike Handcock is GSS Advisory Board Member Landi Jac, GSF Vice President Elias Kanaris and his wife Kay, GSF Executive Director and GSS 2018 COO Shari Bricks, and GSS Chief Information, Communications and Technology Officer Michael Smith.

Together they have spent long days visiting venues, meeting potential sponsors, planning the #GSS2018 program, and working on the website. They also held a fabulous launch party with the members of NSA NZ that was live streamed around the world. You can check out the recording here.

On the #GSS2018 website – – you can learn more about the country, the venue, the program, and of course you’ll find out how to submit applications to speak at the Summit. The website will be an on-going work in progress, and we will be updating it regularly, so keep checking back.

New Zealand is on the list of “must see” places for many people around the world, so the Global Speakers Summit should give you another really good reason to start planning now. New Zealand was just voted third in the Rough Guide’s Most Beautiful Countries In The World, praising the country’s rolling green hills, majestic mountains, breath-taking fjords and amazing diversity of landscape from one island to the next.
