ANZALS 2023 Co-Chairs, Associate Professor Heike Schänzel and Associate Professor Mike Brown, cordially invite students, scholars, and industry practitioners to join them for an enriching week in Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland, known as the City of Sails.

The School of Hospitality and Tourism and the School of Sport and Recreation at Auckland University of Technology (AUT) are joining forces to support ANZALS celebrate our 30th Anniversary and to showcase that “leisure is for life”.

Our hosts are especially keen to welcome those who share their passion for working and recreating in the great outdoors. Researchers looking at the impact of leisure habits on the health and well-being sector, and the importance of pursuing leisure across the lifespan are equally encouraged.

To participate, please submit your abstract before the deadline on 28 July 2023. For further details, please visit the conference website: www.anzals30thanniversaryconference.com

If you are interested in coordinating a session or providing support for the conference, kindly reach out to Dr. Richard Wright, a member of the Local Organizing Committee and ANZALS Event Representative: Richard.wright@aut.ac.nz.

AUT’s City Campus provides an ideal setting to host the 2023 ANZALS Conference. With over 20 diverse accommodation options located within a ten-minute walk, ranging from budget-friendly backpackers to luxurious five-star hotels, we ensure your stay will be comfortable and convenient.

Mark your calendars! ANZALS 15th biennial conference will take place over three days from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 December. This scheduling also allows attendees to conveniently participate in the postponed 17th World Leisure Congress, taking place in Aotearoa – New Zealand. We highly encourage international participants to make the most of their visit by attending both events.
