Announcing the Host of the 2016 Congress

Every two years the International Naturist Federation (INF) have a World Congress which is hosted by different Federations around the world. Just last week, the Irish Naturist Association hosted the INF and Delegates from around the world at a village called Drumshanbo for the 2014 INF Congress.   

The New Zealand Naturist Federation (NZNF) had submitted earlier in the year a bid to host the 2016 World Congress of Naturism in our wonderful country and Delegates at the 2014 Congress voted on that.

We are thrilled to announce that our bid was successful and that the 2016 INF Congress will be held at Wellington Naturist Club (WNC) on the dates of 16th ~ 20th November. 

We are extremely grateful for the significant assistance and resources received from Tourism New Zealand and also Absolutely Positively Wellington and acknowledge their role in securing the hosting rights. 

From registration to venue facilities and accommodation options, our plan is to host a world-class business event and cultural experience. We will make travel information and bookings for attendees professional and easy - with no detail missed.

While the business meetings and events will be held at WNC, there are opportunities for each club and naturist park around the country to host the many international visitors and delegates as they tour pre/post Congress. 

The Steering Committee for the 2016 Congress comprises of Kay Hannam, June Campbell-Tong and Donna Miller who report to Wendy Lowe (NZNF President) and Ken Mercer (Wellington Naturist Club President). 

Assistance will be required from many others with varying areas of expertise to ensure the success and professionalism of the event. Once these areas are identified, requests will be communicated to the naturist community and any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

A Facebook page has been set up to keep you informed with our ideas and plans so please "like" it and share it with your networks so you can be updated as things happen.

4 Reasons - But there's more...much much more!

In just a week the 2014 INF Congress will begin in Ireland. The New Zealand Naturist Federation have submitted a bid to host the 2016 INF Congress in our wonderful country and we are hopeful of and thankful for the support of all the International Federations.

There are so many reasons why the New Zealand Naturist Federation should be chosen as the next host of the INF-FNI Congress 2016, but let's just start with a few...

Reason #1: Our stunningly beautiful country! 
New Zealand is on top of many most desired places to visit lists, and is it any wonder why! 
From majestic mountains, and pristine lakes, to awesome native forests and breathtaking beaches...New Zealand has it all.

Reason #2: We have New Zealand Tourism right behind us helping to bring visitors to our country and to make the 2016 Congress a huge success.

Reason #3: Our 17 naturist clubs and 3 naturist parks in great locations and with friendly and welcoming members for accommodation while pre/post Congress touring.
Plus David our ITO Travel Arranger who will assist with all your arrangements.

Reason #4: A Steering Committee dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic to providing a professional and memorable event with no detail missed...and they have the support of 1500 NZNF members!

Like we said, these are just a few of the many reasons why a World Naturist Congress would be spectacular in New Zealand!

We thank you all once again for your support and hope to soon be announcing news of our success!
