Conference Welcome

Thank you for attending the Concrete NZ Conference 2022. Registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you at the next conference!

Kia ora,

As you will be aware the 2020 Concrete NZ Conference was cancelled because of COVID-19 disruption, and our attempts to host an October 2021 conference were also thwarted, despite a postponement to February 2022, due to pandemic restrictions.

However, here we are, with planning proceeding ‘full steam ahead’ for an October 2022 event at the Energy Events Centre in Rotorua.

It therefore gives me great pleasure, on behalf of the Organising Committee,
to either welcome you back or invite you anew to the 2022 Concrete NZ Conference.

This event is an excellent opportunity to present papers and keep abreast of recent advances in a broad range of topics relating to construction, design, manufacturing processes and materials.

After seven years, we are returning to one of the most favourite New Zealand conference destinations, Rotorua. The Energy Event Centre is a modern venue with ample trade exhibitor space and a vast area directly outside which is ideal for displaying heavy equipment and vehicles, and for conducting live demonstrations.

We are fortunate indeed to have retained a high-profile keynote speaker to lead this year’s technical programme, one who will offer a unique insight on topics related to the structural sustainability of concrete structures.

Santiago Pujol, Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Canterbury, has graciously recommitted to the 2022 conference. In his presentation, titled "The Future of Concrete", he will share concrete detailing insights based on over twenty years' experience testing concrete structures.

As always, the well-crafted conference social programme is designed to provide a unique platform for networking with friends and industry colleagues, old and new. Rotorua or "Roto Vegas" for the night lovers, offers a suite of unique and creative opportunities to make the 2022 Conference memorable.

These opportunities are the essence of the Conference and made especially valuable due to the attendance of enthusiastic people from such a cross-section of the wider concrete industry and construction sector.

Don't miss this unique opportunity.
