Building Nations is New Zealand’s premier event in the nation’s infrastructure calendar.

Attendance has increased steadily since its inception in 2006. Over 800 public and private sector delegates attended the two-day conference last year, hearing from thought leaders across the infrastructure sector, participated in various workshops, and contributed to the debate to influence the future of New Zealand.

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.

The theme of Building Nations 2021 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.

Held in November, delegates will have an opportunity to step back from their 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.

This year’s programme will cover a wide array of topics such as COVID-19, the state of the economy, resource management system reform, three waters reform, public transport and urban regeneration, climate change, building back better and te ao Māori as an integrated infrastructure delivery approach, to name a few.
