It is with regret we have made the decision this morning (16 March) to postpone the NZ Downstream conference & expo to September 2020. Over the weekend the strength of the Government’s response to COVID-19 has been made clear and we are anticipating announcements today regarding mass gatherings. We support these efforts to flatten the curve and, thus, the impact on the health of New Zealanders and the economy.

This is not a decision we have made lightly. However, we believe it is the right decision, one that takes account of the health of you and us and we have already received significant support from speakers, sponsors and attendees that it is the right one.

Your ticket and or sponsorship will automatically transfer to the rescheduled dates. You do not need to do anything further.

Turning this into a positive, we will look forward to seeing you all in September when the country is climbing out of this period and when we will all enjoy getting the machinery of business up and running again so that our country and businesses can keep building on the good work achieved thus far in 2020.

We will alert you to the new event date as soon as it is available.
