2014 National Maintenance Engineering Conference Hits The Airwaves


Yes, the Maintenance Engineering Society of New Zealand (MESNZ) have gone main stream. Listeners in Auckland and Waikato may have picked their ears up with the new radio campaign for the 2014 SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference going to air from July. The advertising campaign is part of a larger strategy to ensure we have connected with engineers who are not aware of the society or the conference coming to Hamilton on November 12, 13.

As well as attendees, MESNZ are making sure that engineering suppliers don’t miss out too, their depth and innovation adding a popular highlight to the annual conference. There is one reason why the 2014 event is going to the Kingsgate Hamilton – space. MESNZ is budgeting for a 50% increase in exhibitors, taking the enjoyment level for attendees up to a whole new level.

The speaking schedule is now confirmed, with an international flavour covering a wide range of topics guaranteed to be of inspiration and interest to maintenance engineers, manufacturers and line managers. Approximately 13 papers will be presented, all with a holistic relationship to maintenance and line management. The topics are drawn from a mix of subjects representing the technical, line management, operations and business responsibilities facing engineers in modern industry: Preventative Maintenance, Maintenance Management, Reliability Case Studies, Business Weapons, Electric Motor Reliability, Machine Guarding. The emphasis is on brevity and enlightenment, with a focus on case studies and peer experiences.

Registrations are now open and filling up fast, underlining the fact that business and engineers are keen to lift their game. The low entry cost is certainly an incentive, appreciated by attendees well used to tight budgets. Readers can find out more details or register online here.
