SPEVI hosts a four or five-day conference every two years in one of Australia’s states or territories, or in New Zealand. These biennial conferences offer Australian, New Zealand, Pacific Island and international leaders, professionals and parents/carers the opportunity to share information and ideas about current and emerging services, programs, technologies and resources for children and adults who are blind, have low vision, deaf-blindness, or additional disabilities.
