RIMS, IDS and NZUAG are continuing with a two day event, following on from the success of the previous forums.  We are proud to be supporting regional New Zealand and hosting the forum at the Palmerston North Convention Centre, Wednesday 21 March & Thursday 22 March, 2018. We have introduced a 3rd stream for Thursday – Procurement and Performance Monitoring.

Draft Programme outline
DAY ONE will be plenary presentations which are aimed at the broad roading infrastructure management industry. It will have a strong focus on sharing asset management good practice examples, data collection, works management, transforming data into intelligence and the use of systems and data in optimised decision making and the management of assets.  Throughout we will be showing ingenuity, with examples of leading best practice and thinking around adapting to current issues, innovation and managing better than we have.

DAY TWO will consist of two concurrent, focused theme streams that will go in to more detail on [1] Roading Optimised Decision Making and [2] Corridor Management and [3]  Procurement and Performance Monitoring.  The streams on day two will host more detailed technical talks and will also include workshops for sharing difficulties & learning’s, debating and digging further in to some key issues in these parts of the industry.  An important goal of day two is to provide a forum for professionals in the sectors of the industry that do not often get the opportunity to meet as a community to come together and make contacts/network.

Forum attendees will be those with an interest in advanced roading asset management and improving the use and preservation of roading corridors and include:
