“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Those words were said by President John F Kennedy at his inauguration in 1961, and were designed to galvanize a nation to action through personal responsibility.

After four years of effort and support by a lot of different people in industry and academia, HERA has finally reached the stage where we can showcase the work we have been doing in the Above Ground Geothermal and Allied Technologies (AGGAT) programme with the first AGGAT Global Conference to be held at the Sky City Convention Centre on 30th April.

This is THE opportunity area for New Zealand companies, especially in providing niche solutions to the market. What makes this conference special is its timing, which is immediately after the World Geothermal Congress (WGC) held in Melbourne the week before.

Delegates from around the world will be coming to WGC and some will be arriving in New Zealand for geothermal site visits right after and some of these will be attending the AGGAT Global Conference.

Now what we need is your support to make this inaugural conference a success we can build on for the future. Registration is easy just go to www.aggat.co.nz and be part of this ground breaking experience.

The great thing about the AGGAT programme is it is here for you and we want you to ask what it can do for you, and what you can do for us is come to the conference to find out. Look forward to seeing you there!
