The capital will bare all in 2016 when it hosts the world's largest nudist conference at the Wellington Naturist Club's HQ in Upper Hutt.

The 2016 International Naturist Federation (INF) World Congress was secured in a joint push from the New Zealand Naturist Federation (NZNF), Tourism New Zealand's conference assistance programme, Upper Hutt City Council and Business Events Wellington.

Every two years the INF World Congress is hosted by different Federations around the world and this is the first time New Zealand will be hosting the event.

''Along with the Federation Executive and our 1500 members nationwide, we look forward to welcoming the many expected international delegates to New Zealand,'' NZNF national president Wendy Lowe said.

''From registration to venue facilities and accommodation options, our plan is to host a world-class business event and cultural experience,'' Lowe said.
