Call for speakers: Timber in Commercial Building

Wednesday 18 Apr 2018

Innovatek's 3rd annual "Changing Perceptions" Conference is focused on the growing use of engineered timber in construction. It is scheduled for August 28th, 2018 in Rotorua. This conference will showcase the use of engineered timber internationally as well as exploring changes in timber use in New Zealand. The value of wood will be explored from different angles, including both emotive and economic responses to engineered timber buildings.

Our target audience is developers, architects, engineers, building designers, specifiers and quantity surveyors. The conference, that draws strong audience numbers, will continue on from the previous two events in this series, exploring further the use of engineered timber in buildings both in New Zealand and around the globe.

This year’s conference has been timed to suit developers as the NZ Property Council is meeting in Rotorua the same week. We are working closely with a wide range of international operators, service suppliers, researchers and government organisations to develop a strong and innovative programme.

If you are an early adopter, developer, innovator, technology supplier, service provider or researcher within the engineered timber and construction sector, the CPETC team would like to hear from you.

The CPETC 2018 conference will include sessions on:
  • Building Performance: Design & Implementation
  • Timber Options for delivering Commerical Building Solutions
  • Building the Future Sustainably
  • Overcoming Barriers to New Solutions

If you are interested in being considered as a presenter, or would like to recommend an early adopter, case study or international expert, please contact us by visiting
