Downstream 2020 will feature an exciting line up of speakers, providing debate and discussion on the key issues facing the energy sector.  It features five main events:

- (afternoon of Monday 16 March at the Te Wharewaka o Poneke)
Held during the afternoon before the main Downstream conference, the forum brings together New Zealand’s network managers and their teams to discuss important sector trends and opportunities.  This complimentary event is open to all network staff involved with managing, designing, operating and building New Zealand’s transmission and distribution systems.


The two-day Summit focuses on the important energy sector opportunities covering generation, transmission, distribution, retail and regulation, preparing the sector for the new energy future.

 
The New Zealand energy market is changing at a rapid pace which promises to transform the way we consume, manage and think about energy.  Following the specialist content over previous events, Downstream 2020 again features digital-focused sessions to highlight the opportunities and challenges accompanying the technology revolution.


Downstream is renowned for bringing together decision makers from across the energy and utility sector.  The 2020 event facilitates change and transformation across the energy sector by providing you with more opportunities to engage and interact.

After listening to the plenary sessions, join your peers in our Engage Zone.  During our extended Engage sessions, participate in a range of activities or simply use the time to connect with peers and meet with the exhibitors.  Engage includes the Industry Roundtables, the Downstream Seminars in the pop-up theatre and the Interaction Zone set up for dedicated pre-arranged meetings with other delegates and participating organisations.

 - Evening of Day One (Tuesday 17 March, 2020) 
The Downstream Dinner:  This is the best networking function at Downstream.  The Dinner features a three-course meal followed by a evening of entertainment and socialising. 

This year, the Downstream Dinner will host the 'Political Fireside Chat' with representatives from the main parties joining the Minister of the Energy and Resources to discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the energy sector.  It is election year after all...
