BuildNZ has been uniting New Zealand’s Built environment for over three decades. It is the largest and longest-running Building and Construction Industry trade show in the country providing industry professionals a face to face platform to share ideas, discover new products, learn about new technologies and build business relationships.

We have a strong partnership with PrefabNZ, and are committed to supporting new and emerging construction technologies and methods in the Innovation Quarter – a feature area within BuildNZ showcasing cutting-edge research in prefabrication and design from leading experts and universities.

The show brings together leading brands, suppliers and thousands of visitors to showcase and experience first-hand, the latest advancements within the industry. With strong industry partnerships and collaboration BuildNZ invites leading brands and suppliers to showcase the latest technologies and construction methods to thousands of industry buyers and decision-makers.

2020 will see the third installment of the KiwiBuild Summit and another round of vigorous debate over the somewhat troubled initiative – who knows if KiwiBuild still be around or will we be seeing a whole new proposition from the government on how we solve the housing crisis in NZ?
