The EEA Conference and Trade Exhibition is New Zealand's largest power industry event bringing together national and international experts on engineering, technology and innovation platforms that are reshaping our industry.

The landscape for the energy sector is on the cusp of major changes lead by emerging technology, big data, customer initiatives, new asset management practices, and evolving business and regulatory models.

In 2018, over 700 delegates and exhibitors gathered in the heart of Auckland to hear engaging presentations, interactive panel discussions and papers from engineering, safety and innovation leaders, while networking with other industry professionals.

The 2018 Trade Exhibition attracted leading companies and individuals from around New Zealand, Australia and the world to take part as exhibitors, speakers and attendees. It is a great opportunity for companies to profile their services and products and to engage with delegates looking for ways to enable their businesses to meet the challenges of change.

The conference programme offered a diverse range of strategic and technical sessions on technology, innovation, best practice, case studies, solutions and practical developments from New Zealand and overseas generation, network , engineering and safety practitioners.

In 2019 we are back in Auckland over the dates 25 to 27 June 2019 at the SkyCity Convention Centre. Place these dates into your diaries now.
