About The Forum

COVID-19 Information for our attendees & partners

The prefab industry is currently at a critical tipping point, as it waits for the New Zealand government’s building reforms to get underway. Prefab is expected to play a major role in delivering the 100,000 affordable homes planned. Offsite manufacturing is mission-critical to delivering the country’s housing and urban development program, raise productivity, delivering the quality, volume and price people can afford.

The event will be attended by international prefab experts, master builders, offsite manufacturing practitioners, developers, building material suppliers and prefab services traders, making it an excellent networking opportunity that is not to be missed! Mark 5 – 7 July 2021 in your calendars now!
