REGISTRATIONS NOW OPEN! 2018 NZPI Breaking New Ground Conference

2018 Conference

Join us in Tauranga for the 2018 NZPI Annual Conference!


We are pleased to announce registrations for the 2018 Breaking New Ground Conference are now open!

The ground is at the heart of planning. When we build, we must break ground. In a figurative sense, planners must constantly break new ground by adopting new technologies and fresh approaches to planning practice.

This year’s NZPI Conference, Breaking New Ground, picks up on these themes by looking at new methods influencing professional practice, as well as planning for both growth and decline. Breaking New Ground will be hosted in Tauranga, a key urban hub located within the thriving regional economy of the Bay of Plenty. Such economic growth does not come without its challenges, and the conference will focus on the pressures of growth and development on our natural environment.

Help us break new ground! Each year the conference draws planning leaders, Iwi, and practitioners from local government, universities and consultancies, into a forward focussed discourse on the challenges and opportunities ahead in relation to planning best practice and implementation.
