Quarry NZ Conference

13th – 15th July 2022 New Plymouth

On behalf of the IOQ and the AQA I would like to thank you for attending the QuarryNZ Conference.  This year saw 550 delegates and exhibitors come together in New Plymouth to listen to a great line up of presenters and network and engage with key people in one place, creating contacts that will help them in their future business.   We thank you for your support of the QuarryNZ Conference and we look forward to seeing you again in Christchurch in 2023.

QuarryNZ Conference 2023 – 5-7 July 2023 – Te Pae Convention Centre, Christchurch. Check back here for updates.


Each year the Institute of Quarrying NZ (IOQ), and the Aggregate and Quarry Association of NZ (AQA) hold an annual joint conference.

The QuarryNZ 2022 Local Organizing Committee invite all Delegates, Partners, Sponsors and Distributors to attend the 2022 QuarryNZ conference.  The Conference will be held in New Plymouth between the 13th and 15th July 2022.


The IOQ is a professional institute and its membership is open to individuals in a position of responsibility who have appropriate qualifications and/or experience employed in, or supplying to, the surface mineral extractive and processing industries.

For more information on the IOQ, please visit the website at https://ioqnz.co.nz/

The AQA was formed in response to the need for an industry group that could represent aggregate companies on a range of issues, as well as liaise with specifiers and end users of the materials. Membership has widened to include, for instance, lime suppliers, and stands at over 80 companies, which between them produce 85% of the aggregates and allied raw materials used in New Zealand.

For more information on the AQA, please visit the website at https://www.aqa.org.nz/

The conference is an opportunity for all those involved in the quarrying industry to interact and exchange ideas, take the opportunity to hear the experiences of guest speakers and to socialise with old friends and colleagues and to make new contacts. CPD: 4 hours restricted CPD and up to 15 hours of unrestricted CPD available.

PLEASE NOTE: Terra Cat Welcome Dinner and TDX Ltd Awards Dinner are now SOLD OUT
