Plenary Opening
Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel will be welcoming delegates to the revitalised city, and providing an overview of the rebuild's signature projects, but also the transitioning to 'business as usual' for the near-term building and construction needs.

Keynote Speaker
Economic commentator Rod Oram has spoken at the Metals Industry Conferences 2008 and 2015. By popular demand, he will again speak this year, providing his insights into the economic drivers shaping our markets in the near term, and also the strategic imperatives that our industry needs to consider as we look to position our industry for a strong future.

Rod uses his skills in journalism, management and leadership to help New Zealanders face tough economic challenges and seize on exciting business opportunities. Rod is eminently qualified to present the opening keynote address at the Metals Industry Conference, Addington Raceway & Events Centre in Christchurch, on 15th September.

The main conference event will start at 4.15pm after the HERA presentations in the morning and early afternoon.  The signature Metals Industry Awards Gala Dinner follows the Plenary, starting at 7pm.

Industry Awards Gala Dinner
The Hon Nicky Wagner, Minister for the Regeneration of the city will join us for the dinner. This presents an excellent opportunity to showcase our industry to VIPs and guests for the benefit of the local business and the NZ metals industry.
