National Maintenance Engineering Conference announces major package for students and apprentices
The 2015 SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference is set to become the Mecca for Generation Y engineers with the announcement today of a major conference participation package for apprentices and engineering students.
Participation pricing for the two day national event are already the lowest in the Southern Hemisphere at $795+GST pp, however the announcement of a special apprentice and student package at $ 320+GSTpp represents unbelievable value for people new to industry and wanting to grasp the opportunity to learn and network.
Organised by the Maintenance Engineering Society of NZ, the annual event reflects the ethos of the society in embracing and developing engineers. Society members need no convincing of the importance of nurturing each new generation and the organisers are backing the radical move to open up access to apprentices and students. According to Expo Manager Chris Thomas, “This event already has a significant focus on engineering careers with the Bill Buckley Engineering Scholarship and the Competenz Stuart Tolhurst Apprentice Trophy being presented during proceedings. Add to this over 60 major industry suppliers in the Exhibition Hall, two days of inspiring and informative papers from our multi-national panel of speakers and the chance to meet with potential future employers and I know where I would be if I was starting on a career in engineering.”
For apprentices on a time budget, a one-day pass is also offered a $190+ GSTpp. Details and registration can be found online at www.mesnz.org.nz/conference/ registration/
The 2015 SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference will be held the Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton on November 18 and 19. As well as preconference training opportunities, the Exhibition Hall will be open for invited guests and pre-registered members of the public from 2-5: 30pm on Tuesday 17 November.
