AGGREGATE & QUARRY ASSOCIATION

Annual Conference

The annual conference of the quarry sector is jointly organised by the AQA and the Institute of Quarrying.

The QuarryNZ Conference is held each year in July. It’s 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.

One of the benefits of being an AQA member is that you will also receive a discount on your registration.
