Metals Industry Conference

& Industry Awards Gala Dinner 2017
15th September, Addington Events Centre & Raceway, Christchurch

Time to book your flights!
During the month of April, the Metals NZ Executive consisting of nine industry associations’ Chairmen or their representatives, confirmed that the Metals Industry Conference will be held at Christchurch’s Addington Raceway & Events Centre, on September 15th.

Metals New Zealand in conjunction with its industry association partners HERA, SCNZ, MRM, NZSSDA, NASH, CTNZ, and GANZ will host the Metals Industry Conference and Industry Awards Gala Dinner. The Conference format is more compact than before but will be very focused with a welcome and overview of the Canterbury rebuild and beyond by Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel, and a high quality plenary presentation by economic commentator Rod Oram.

   
I'm in - SIGN ME UP!
   

Plenary Opening
Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel will be welcoming delegates to the revitalised city, and providing an overview of the rebuild's signature projects, but also the transitioning to 'business as usual' for the near-term building and construction needs.

 

Keynote Speaker
Economic commentator Rod Oram has spoken at the Metals Industry Conferences 2008 and 2015. By popular demand, he will again speak this year, providing his insights into the economic drivers shaping our markets in the near term, and also the strategic imperatives that our industry needs to consider as we look to position our industry for a strong future.

Rod uses his skills in journalism, management and leadership to help New Zealanders face tough economic challenges and seize on exciting business opportunities. Rod is eminently qualified to present the opening keynote address at the Metals Industry Conference, Addington Raceway & Events Centre in Christchurch, on 15th September.

The main conference event will start at 4.15pm after the association meetings, AGMs and seminars in the morning and early afternoon.  The signature Metals Industry Awards Gala Dinner follows, starting at 6.45pm.

The Mayor will be joined by a Minister who is yet to confirm. Our event is one week out from the election and diaries are being kept fluid at this time.
