NZCB | 23rd Conference and Expo
17 - 19 Nov 2022 | Claudelands Event Centre
The building industry boom will start to slow down and there will be a need for more resilience as we learn to live with the effects of COVID-19.
How will we do this? By showing strong leadership, looking after our staff wellbeing, keeping communication lines open, helping each other, and learning from our past experiences. With this in mind, the theme for the 2022 New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB) Conference and Expo is Resilience and Recovery.
This will be an invaluable opportunity for you to network with trade industry experts and like-minded builders/members in a face-to-face and casual setting, while ensuring you and your staff are up-to-date with the continual changes within the building and construction industry.
You will also get to meet Chris Polaczuk and hear all about the Work Should Not Hurt programme.
