The (8,0) conformal supergravity, and an action which describes its coupling to an arbitrary number of (8,0) scalar multiplets are constructed. The 64+64 components of the conformal supermultiplet occur as Lagrange multipliers which lead to differential and algebraic constraints on the fields of the scalar multiplets. Solving the algebraic constraints yields an (8,0) locally supersymmetric sigma model based on the manifold SO(8+n,m)/SO(8)×SO(n,m), where n,m≥0.
