"Collaboration for Success"

On behalf of Plastics New Zealand, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to Rotorua for the 74th Plastics New Zealand Annual Conference on the 17th & 18th May 2018.


Our venue is the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside. Right in the heart of the city this hotel was chosen for its fabulous location, ambience and amenities. It’s also right on the doorstep of Rotorua’s famous ‘Eat Street’.

 The Waikato Branch will host this year’s event with a compelling theme of “Collaboration for Success”.

The meaning of Collaboration is well understood, while success can mean many different things to different people. For me it is about ensuring a sustainable future for plastic manufacturing in NZ. This is no small challenge with rapid technology changes, digital globalisation and environmental pressures all converging at an accelerated pace to create a highly complex ecosystem for businesses.

Never has it been more important to join other industry players to learn, network and share views on the impact of these trends and how as leaders we will need to respond.

As an industry we need to ensure the new Government understands the value of manufacturing to the general well-being of NZ communities and the economy. We need to advocate on the importance of creating the right business environment and on providing targeted support for manufacturers.

It is also extremely fitting that EECA is again our principal sponsor. We thank them most sincerely for supporting this event in continuance of their ongoing partnership with the industry.

We also thank the other contributors to the 74th conference. Your collaboration ensures the success of the event.

Come and be inspired by motivating and entertaining speakers and thought leaders, and position your business for future success
