NZAEE Seaweek is a non-commercial event which is only possible through the generosity of our national supporters and our Regional Coordinators network. In-kind contributions from a wide range of supporters and extensive regional sponsorships are also critical for Seaweek. Supporters also helped with publicity and activities and a wide range of people and organisations get involved in our regions – we couldn’t do it without you! If you or your organisation is interested in supporting Seaweek, please contact us.
