New Zealand International Building Expo & Summit

Initiated by New Zealand Chinese Building Industry Association, NZIBES provides a valuable and unique platform for leading overseas and local suppliers, developers, architects/designers, builders and other industry participants to share vital information, innovative ideas, discuss topical issues and share essential resources.



Showcase your brand & get business done

Focused on bringing together the very best organisations from across China and New Zealand, exhibiting offers allows you to showcase your brand and products, develop quality leads and make sales over the two days. Last year, over 90 brands were exhibited at NZIBES and attracted more than 9,000 targeted visitors.
This year, NZIBES will focus on "Achieving A Sustainable New Zealand Together" and bring the related business and professions from the entire industrial supply chain.

Meet future partners and showcase your brand.
