BuildNZ addresses construction industry challengesHigh interest rates, skilled worker shortages to be discussed

Coasties and locals involved in the construction industry are set to gather at BuildNZ 2024, held June 25-26 at Auckland Showgrounds, to discuss the sector's pressing challenges and opportunities.


BuildNZ, the largest industry-specific event in Aotearoa, brings together top names from New Zealand and around the globe.


This year's event will tackle high interest rates, inflationary pressures, and the cost-of-living crisis, which are impacting the construction sector.





A critical shortage of skilled workers and upcoming government changes also pose significant hurdles.


The event will feature an accredited keynote speaker series, offering 35 NZRAB CPD pre-approved points, and insights from industry leaders at the BCI Central stage.


These sessions will address market challenges, emerging technologies, and key business priorities for the year ahead.


A panel discussion moderated by the German New Zealand Chamber of Commerce will explore the new EU-NZ Free Trade Agreement's implications for New Zealand's construction sector.


This discussion will feature EU representatives, legal experts, and government officials.


Beyond expert-led content, BuildNZ provides an opportunity for attendees to connect with over 200 local and international suppliers and see the latest products and technologies firsthand.





As the industry continues to grapple with ongoing change, collaboration remains key.


With the backing of leading industry associations and event partners, BuildNZ provides an unparalleled platform for those involved in designing, constructing, and managing New Zealand's built environment.


BuildNZ has a long history in New Zealand, serving as the leading trade event for the Building, Construction, Design, and Architecture Industries.


It continues to be a vital forum for professionals to share ideas, showcase innovations, and build business relationships.
