Kia Ora!

The Publishers Association of New Zealand/Te Rau o Tākupu (PANZ) represents trade, educational, scholarly and digital publishers across Aotearoa New Zealand. PANZ is focused on assisting our members with their current business and preparing them for the future, in areas such as training and professional development, and representing publishers’ interests to government and other sectors.


Export Opportunities

PANZ places a strong emphasis on export, offering members training seminars and the opportunity to showcase their books at international book fairs. In recent years both Creative New Zealand and Education New Zealand have been supporters and funders of these initiatives.


Industry Statistics

Nielsen Book Research completed a report to PANZ on the size of the New Zealand publishing market in 2022. The New Zealand Publishing Market Size Report 2022 sets an important benchmark for measuring the value and volume of sales across the publishing industry.
