This year’s NZ Concrete Industry Conference at the Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton (Thursday 11 – Saturday 13 October) has attracted an extraordinarily diverse range of proposed presentations – reflected in the abstracts received.
The planning team will ensure programme topics that fall across research, concrete construction projects and associated technologies, design trends, construction, materials, methodologies and standards updates.
Complementing the programme are our two keynote speakers, confirmed as Professors Campbell Middleton (Cambridge University) and Michael Thomas (University of New Brunswick). They bring a wealth of experience in infrastructure
engineering and concrete durability.
An expected 350 delegates will be attending, in addition to a host of exhibitors that have already reserved their stands.
This year’s conference also marks a significant milestone – it’s being held under the unified banner of Concrete New Zealand the first time.
Proceedings commence on Thursday afternoon and conclude at midday Saturday, with the formal conference dinner and Awards being held on the Friday night.
As always, the event provides extensive networking opportunities for delegates, and Hamilton – and the immediate surrounding area – is home to plenty of facilities for social outings.
The conference incorporates Concrete NZ, Concrete NZ – Masonry, Concrete NZ – Learned Society, Concrete NZ – Readymix and Concrete NZ – Precast. This combination is regarded as the optimum format for presenting the most interesting and varied programme for all sectors of the industry.
