The New Zealand Building Industry Awards are going ahead for 2020, but with changes to dates and format. 

Entries are open and the deadline to submit entries has been extended to Friday, 24 July 2020.

The Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner will now be held on Friday, 30 October 2020, and will be held across three venues in Auckland (The Cordis), Wellington (Te Papa), and Christchurch (Town Hall). Connected via a virtual platform, the event will be delivered in a format similar to a television network’s election night special, with finalists attending the various venues, and the MC cutting to live feeds from each venue for the presentations of the awards. The event will also be live-streamed.

Built to Last Conference

Friday, 30 October 2020

Planning is well underway for the NZIOB’s Built to Last conference, scheduled for later this year. As with most large-scale events, however, we are having to re-think our approach to how and when we hold it. 

  • One change we have already committed to is the date. The conference will now take place on Friday, 30 October 2020.
  • Another change is the format. We are currently working through different scenarios on how to deliver a quality programme within the confines of the COVID-19 environment. Most likely this means that the conference; either in part or in entirety, will be delivered virtually.
  • And lastly, we are looking at the programme itself. Given the challenges of 2020, we feel it is imperative to include Resilience as one of the key themes. 

Built to Last 2020 will be an opportunity for you to hear from national and international industry experts on what construction best practice now looks like in a post COVID-19 world. To receive updates as the programme develops, register your interest in attending.
