Kia ora and welcome!

Seating to Go is proud to be hosting the 5th Oceania Seating Symposium (OSS) in collaboration with Swinburne University of Technology (Australia) and the International Seating Symposium (ISS) at the Rotorua Energy Event Centre, Aotearoa, New Zealand, on the 4th – 6th November 2025. After an amazing in-person event in Melbourne in 2023, we are excited to once again welcome people to our beautiful country.  November signals the transition between spring and summer and is a wonderful time to combine attending an internationally recognised conference, reconnecting with colleagues and friends from our global community, and exploring the many amazing rohe (regions) of Aotearoa, New Zealand.  

The initial 1983 ISS meeting in Vancouver has grown to include participants from 27 countries with Sponsor conferences around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, Brazil, Asia, and Oceania. The Oceania Seating Symposium alternates between Aotearoa, New Zealand and Australia every two years and attracts delegates and speakers from all over the world.

Who is it for? The event is geared towards professionals, manufacturers, suppliers, researchers and users of wheeled mobility, seating, postural care, and associated technologies.

Theme – Whai Wāhi: Participation - An Expression of Self.
