Aggregate & Quarry Association

Annual Conference

The annual conference of the quarry sector is jointly organised by the AQA and the Institute of Quarrying.

The QuarryNZ conference is held each year in July. It’s an opportunity for all those involved in the quarrying industry to interact and exchange ideas, take the opportunity to hear the experiences of guest speakers and to socialise with old friends and colleagues, and to make new contacts. One of the benefits of being an AQA member is you will also receive a discount on your resgistration.

AQA Annual Conference 2020

QuarryNZ will be held at Westpac Stadium in Wellington July 2020. 

AQA Annual Conference 2019

QuarryNZ was held at ILT Stadium Southland on 17-19 July 2019. The theme was "Southern Rock Anchoring New Zealand."


About quarrying in New Zealand

Using Aggregate

Aggregates are the most consumed bulk product in the world after water. New Zealand uses 9-10 tonnes of aggregate every year for each adult and child.

Building NZ

To build an average house, you need about 250 tonnes of aggregate - for use in concrete, asphalt, mortar and building products.

Our Community

The quarry industry is committed to working alongside local communities and follows stringent planning, environmental and operating conditions.
