Asset Management Forum - 24th and 25th June: Prior to EEA Conference

24 June 2019 - 25 June 2019
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Epsom Room 2, SKYCITY Convention Centre
88 Federal Street, Auckland

This year's forum is focused around Assets, Opportunities and Innovation in the asset management aspect of the electricity business.

It brings together the technical knowledge and experience of New Zealand professionals, with the development work the EEA's Asset Management Group (AMG) has been progressing through the year.

The asset management forum is less formal than the main conference, and an abstract and written paper are not required to present. Presentations can vary in length from 5 minutes to an hour, depending on content.

The forum is designed and structured as workshops and panel discussions to prompt discussion and engagement on improving asset management practices in our industry, by sharing knowledge and fostering industry collaboration.

The Agenda

The agenda for the forum is currently under construction and we welcome suggested topics and presentations from our members. This year's draft agenda is exciting and covers current assets and condition, then looks at the opportunities that are in the near future, finally the opportunity to see some of the innovation that is being undertaken in our industry.

Please contact with any suggestions and feedback.
