Site Visits

Wednesday 19th September

Come along to some great site visits organised in conjunction with this year’s conference!

City Rail Link     14:00 – 16:30

The City Rail Link project is the top transport priority for Auckland. With the population expected to grow by 700,000 people in the next 30 years, this project coupled with the bus improvements is the only way to keep Auckland moving.

The visit will consist of a large group CRL presentation followed by a route walk along Albert Street.  Please note that due to Health & Safety regulations, no site access will be possible.

With the CLR project underway for a few years now it’s a great opportunity to hear how the Project Team have managed the following;

  • How does progress to date compare against planned time & budget.
  • Has the scope changed – items added / removed? 
  • Were any risks which were initially identified mitigated?  If so then how?
  • How has the goal of “little disruption to the moving of people in the city” been achieved?

Business Transformation site visit to NZME      13:30 – 16:00

New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) is a result of bringing together three New Zealand media brands, APN NZ, The Radio Network (TRN) and GrabOne and unifying them under one overarching banner. The result is an organisation with a portfolio of radio, digital, e-commerce and print brands producing fantastic content, targeting New Zealand audiences.

Come and hear about this transformational project and see one of these brands in action. 

Auckland Museum      13:30 – 16:30

Get up close and personal with a “behind the scenes” visit to the Auckland Museum, and hear from the Head of Exhibitions and Engagement.
