2015 Conference

We are now calling for paper presenters for our 2015 conference to be held in Blenheim 6th - 8th May.

WIOG's objectives are about sharing information, ideas, developing peoples skills and confidence.

This is an opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences with fellow operations people. We are all involved in operational changes, upgrades and projects that add to the continuous improvement of our industry, it doesn't need to be a large project, perhaps a new learning experience, a good idea, or a change in equipment that worked well for your organisation.  I encourage you to register your intention to provide a paper at info@wiog.org.nz 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding submitting a paper please contact WIOG at info@wiog.org.nz or any one of our committee members. We are still looking for papers from operators so click on the submission form below and have a go. Alternatively team up with a supplier and do a dual presentation.
