NZIQS Conference

12 - 14 June 2024 

Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Tākina Convention Centre



In the ever-evolving landscape of construction and project management, quantity surveyors play a pivotal role in ensuring the efficient allocation of resources, cost-effectiveness, and the successful execution of projects. The NZIQS Conference serves as a nexus for the exchange of cutting-edge insights, methodologies, and best practices that empower quantity surveyors to navigate the challenges of today and anticipate the opportunities of tomorrow.

This year's conference is not merely an assembly of professionals; it is a dynamic platform for collaboration, idea-sharing, and fostering a community that thrives on continuous learning. From emerging technologies that reshape the way we quantify and manage costs to sustainable practices that align with global environmental goals, our agenda is tailored to address the multifaceted dimensions of quantity surveying.

Join us as we delve into enlightening keynotes, engaging panel discussions, and hands-on workshops led by industry trailblazers. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the field, the NZIQS Conference promises to be a source of inspiration, networking, and knowledge that propels your career to new heights.
