The 19th Annual Conference 2023
Fraser High School,
Hamilton, New Zealand
The 2023 MESNZ Maintenance Engineering Conference is the one must-attend event on your business calendar.
“I invite you, and all those on whom you depend, to join your peers for the 19th Annual MESNZ Maintenance Engineering Conference in Hamilton, 3rd – 5th October 2023.
If a strong engineering education and communication will launch a career, continuous learning will keep it going.
You will already know that as engineers, we are tasked with maximising plant performance to accomplish ambitious and changing production schedules with ever-decreasing maintenance resources – budgets, people, deadlines.
Success is measured in plant up-time and productivity.
Adapting is constant. Problem solving is endless. Innovation is essential.
In this dynamic changing world how can we develop and nurture great engineers?
I invite you to join me and 200+ other engineers to network, share experiences and discover real strategies you can take to grow your engineering team.
MESNZ Maintenance Engineering Conference 2023 is the best forum for continuous learning for today’s engineers. So please join us.”
Growing Great Engineers
As much as a strong engineering education and effective communication skills will launch a career, the ability to continuously learn will keep it going. As engineers, we work to envision the future through production and maintenance plans and technology roadmaps, but where we will be 5 or 10 years from now is truly unknown. As the world adjusts to a post COVID-19 “new normal”, the ability to learn and adapt to increasingly dynamic market movements, resource and supply chain constraints, and new technology developments is absolutely required for continued success in delivering on-going improvement in plant performance. Our members are all back at work looking to make improvements across their operations and what better way to reconnect with the cream of New Zealand’s maintenance engineering community at MESNZ 2023.
We value the support of our sponsors and exhibitors and recognize the vital role you play as a valued cog in the Manufacturing and Maintenance Engineering Supply chain. The MESNZ committee have worked tirelessly to put together a cost-effective opportunity to link you up with new business opportunities as well as reaching out to the next generation of young engineers. More than ever before we need to focus on growing our own engineers and our new student session and associated partnership with the local high schools is directly aimed at attracting the next generation of engineers to an exciting engineering career.
In keeping with the renewed focus of growing the profession in 2022 we introduced four new industry awards to recognize excellence and best practice in our industry as follows: PILZ Best Safety Improvement Project, ESM Best Reliability Improvement Project, Eurotec Best Energy and Carbon Reduction Project and METEX Best Apprentice Training Organisation. We are proud to announce that all four wards are once again on offer in 2023. Entries close Friday 12th September 2023.

MESNZ 2023 is the best forum for continuous learning for today’s engineers. At MESNZ you get the latest in technological advancements, manufacturing capabilities and tools and the vital insights from NZ and global case studies.
Growing the New Generation of Engineers
Engineers have a duty to inspire the next generation of students, apprentices and graduates. To do this, we need greater understanding of and interaction with young people and the local community. We need to break down the stereotypes and re-frame engineering for what it can be with greater emphasis on the analytical, practical, creative, and problem-solving side to engineering.
Engineers love to make cool things and solve problems; indeed, a thriving manufacturing sector is critical to the long-term prospects for the New Zealand economy, especially with the push towards living in a sustainable low carbon future. Each keynote presentation at this year’s conference will build on this theme with practical solutions to the big challenges that we face both now and into the future.
