Iconic Supplier Joins Forces with Conference

Iconic Supplier Joins Forces with National Maintenance Engineering Conference.


Planning for the 2014 SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference is well underway, with registration, exhibition and major sponsorship slots filling up already, six months before the November 12,13 event at Kingsgate Hamilton.

Event sponsor SKF, social night sponsor SGS, official media sponsor DEMM and speaker sponsor Engineering News all quickly committed to a return in 2014, reaffirming their support for maintenance engineers and industry. However, with the event organisers signalling further growth with a switch to the larger Kingsgate site, suppliers are quickly recognising that the SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference deserves their attention.

Grabbing the Exhibition Hall naming rights sponsorship is an iconic supplier well known to maintenance engineers for centuries. James Walker is a company that has been supporting engineering and industry for, well, ever! Founded in 1882 by Scottish engineer James Walker, the company has had a presence in New Zealand since the 1930’s remembered by most for the Lion brand steam packing. Today, the global materials technology based company specialises in anti-vibration products, tension control fasteners, railway trackbed systems and fluid seals. Plenty to take the interest of the engineering attendees!

It is not just long term supporters stepping up with their support. Australia too is expressing an interest in the event, with K2 Technology taking up the Conference Day One Sponsorship. If you have not heard of K2 and their enterprise asset maintenance capabilities, you soon will. With expertise in maintenance and reliability, supply chain and operations support, K2 is well on the way to becoming the Asia Pacific leader in enterprise asset management.

Meanwhile, with a budgeted 50% increase in exhibitors to tickle the fancy of conference attendees, the conference management team are reorganising themselves too to ensure that bigger does mean better without losing the personable ethos that attendees enjoy. Back after an absence of 10 years, Chris Thomas of Special Events Aoraki rejoins Judi Cranston and Leanne Powley as a core member of the Event Team. Thomas, who has been busy organising Masters Games and NZRFU events will have primary responsibility for exhibitors and sponsors, bringing significant capabilities to this growing portfolio.
