Be part of building our nation
Since its inception in 2006, Infrastructure New Zealand’s annual conference Building Nations has gained momentum to become the premier event in New Zealand’s infrastructure calendar.
Facilitating new connections that help to advance careers and projects, Building Nations aims to ‘lead the leaders’ into a future where New Zealand is a global exemplar of smart, sustainable, cost-effective infrastructure that supports a high standard of living for all New Zealanders.
Last year over 800 public and private sector delegates attended to hear from thought leaders across the infrastructure sector, participate in workshops, and contribute to the debate to influence the future of New Zealand.
This year’s theme is A Fork in the Road. Now is the time to boldly commit to a handful of big decisions that will propel New Zealand forward. This is your opportunity to step back from the usual day-to-day approach and focus on the big picture. After all, this is at the core of the Building Nations experience, delivering high calibre international and local speakers, and workshop experiences that encourage you to see new ways to progress some of the more complex challenges facing the infrastructure sector.
Held virtually on 19-19 November, the Building Nations 2021 programme will cover:
- Resource management system reform
- Funding and finance, and the potential of PPPs
- Three Waters Reform, and its implications for local government
- Public transport and stations – their role in future urban regeneration and development
- Climate Change mitigation and infrastructural adaptation
- Te ao Māori, building and delivering more resilient infrastructure across Aotearoa
- The COVID-19 recovery in an international context
- Emerging and advancing technology to meet future infrastructure needs.
