Metals Industry Conferences
Since 2002, HERA has been organising the Metals NZ Industry Conference (previously known as the NZ Metals Industry Conference), which has traditionally garnered an attendance of 300+ and attracted as many as 36 industry exhibitors, 20 keynote speakers and 120 speakers per conference.
Highlights of the Conference are the Industry Tours/company visits, Welcome Function, Opening Ceremony usually by a Government official, Breakout sessions and Metals Industry Awards Gala Dinner.
Besides the industry- and business networking-related elements, the social side of the Conference has also been a popular hit with attendees, in particular the Metals Industry Awards Gala Dinner sponsored by Conference Gold Sponsor New Zealand Steel.
