The NZIQS Annual Conference is the major event on the institute calendar and 2017 is shaping up to be yet another not to be missed conference. The conference will run from 21-23 June 2017 with Welcome Cocktails on the Wednesday night and full day plenary Thursday, Friday. The conference dinner will be held on the Thursday night, this change from the dinner being on the final night is to ensure those of you who need to travel home on Friday night - maybe to watch the All Blacks versus The British Lions on Saturday in Auckland will not miss any of the event.

The Theme is “Leading through Excellence”.  “We chose this theme as we believe as a membership Institute we need to take the lead by showing that our membership reflects our commitment to show excellence within the construction industry. We aim to bring you conference speakers that reflect the ‘Leading through Excellence’ theme to help develop both your professional and personal growth, as well as topics that will ensure you are up to date with what is happening within our industry now and into the future" says 2017 Conference Chairperson Brent Jefferies

Conference Dinner

The Dinner this year not only moves from its usual final night spot but also moves away from the sit down formal dinner model. Wellington is unique and we would like to highlight this with an interactive food celebration where attendees will move around pods creating and sampling food and cocktails - all served with a healthy dollop of competition.


The coolest little capital in the World

Embraced by a natural amphitheatre of ocean and hill, Wellington merges big city culture with small town charm. A lively energy pulses through what is celebrated as New Zealand’s arts, film, coffee, culinary, craft beer, events and political capital. Wellington is also known as a socially and environmentally conscious city. Declared nuclear-free over 30 years ago in 1982, it was also the first capital city in the southern hemisphere to gain Fair Trade status, and is home to the world-leading Zealandia sanctuary.
