National Conference

12-13-14 October, 2021
Fraser High School, Hamilton, NZ


The 2021 National Maintenance Engineers Conference is the one must-attend event on your business calendar.

“I invite you, and all those you depend on, to join your peers for the 18th Annual National Maintenance Engineering Conference in Hamilton, 12th – 14th October 2021.

If a strong engineering education and communication will launch a career, continuous learning will keep it going.

You will already know that as engineers, we are tasked with maximising plant performance to accomplish ambitious and changing production schedules with ever-decreasing maintenance resources – budgets, people, deadlines. Success is measured in plant up-time and productivity.

Adapting is constant. Problem solving is endless. Innovation is essential.

In this dynamic changing world how can we develop and nurture great engineers?

I invite you to join me and 200+ other engineers to network, share experiences and discover real strategies you can take to grow your engineering team.

NMEC 2021 is the best forum for continuous learning for today’s engineers. So please join us.”

Growing the new generation of Engineers

Engineers have a duty to inspire the next generation of students, apprentices and graduates. To do this, we need greater understanding of and interaction with young people and the local community. We need to break down the stereotypes and re-frame engineering for what it can be with greater emphasis on the analytical, practical, creative and problem-solving side to engineering.
