Call for papers – BOINZ Annual Conference & Expo 2016

Call for Papers now open

The 2016 Building Officials Institute of New Zealand’s Annual Conference and Expo is designed for professionals whose work is linked to the building surveying sector.

The audience is comprised of regulatory professionals including building officers, inspectors and surveyors, building consent processors, regulatory managers and team leaders, government representatives and other industry stakeholders.

We are again looking to build an exciting and challenging technical programme across the building surveying spectrum that encompasses a range of relevant nationwide industry issues, experiences, solutions and innovations that will give delegates, including our stakeholder colleagues, an opportunity to gain further insight, knowledge and expertise, with the goal to develop their skills as professionals in their fields.

The 2016 Annual Conference & Expo will be held at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, Christchurch, New Zealand from the 15 – 18 May.

Our conference delegates are open minded, critical thinkers who are hungry for knowledge and new learning opportunities. If you have a topic, presentation or research which would be a great fit in our technical programme, we want to hear from you.
