Conference 2015

Composites Conference 2015

The 2014 Conference, held 10 September in Wellington, was a great success and members gained valuable insight into ways of breaking into new markets, learning from case studies presented on use of composites in many varied applications.

The 2015 Conference will be held at the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre in Auckland on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th October.  We will advise members of more details closer to the time.



The Composites Association of New Zealand (CANZ) will provide a forum for the composites industry to exchange information, celebrate successes and solve problems. This will be achieved by:

  • Being the primary source of composites information for its members.
  • Encouraging and facilitating interaction between its members.
  • Developing industry specific training programs.
  • Providing a unified voice when dealing with Government and its agencies.
  • Promoting the development of new markets for composite products
