A big thank you to all the sponsors, supporters, speakers and delegates who worked with us to make Downstream 2020 a success.

It was a packed two days of valuable discussions on topics including the future outlook for energy supply and security, immediate challenges including the planned closure of Tiwai Point, and the scale-up of programmes to reduce energy hardship.

For those...

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Shed 6 in Wellington and online for Downstream 2020. Thank you to all our delegates, sponsors, speakers and supporters who have patiently worked with us as we rescheduled this important event.

Almost 450 people have registered for Downstream – more than 360 in-person attendees and over 80 online attendees.

See you very soon.


In light of the accelerating recovery from lockdown (and now that we are at level 1), we are taking the opportunity to innovate and combine in-person and online elements to create an event experience like no other for New Zealand’s energy sector.

​Conferenz and Freeman is delighted to now announce that Downstream will be running in-person in Wellington and online.

3-4 August 2020...
