Do you test, measure or calibrate? Are you the decision maker of a calibration or measurement facility?
If YES then this event targets your core business!
Accurate measurement underpins industrial success across all sectors of the economy. It is therefore essential to mobilize highly credible metrology infrastructure and intelligence.

The 2015 MSA Conference meets this demand with world-class speakers, case studies and workshops that showcase innovation and highlights the challenges of providing our end users with first-rate metrology capabilities.

This conference sponsored by Callaghan Innovation, will be held from 14-16th October in Queenstown, New Zealand. From this event, your business will increase its awareness and understanding of physical measurements. It highlights that good measurement is great for business.

The audience will include businesses that use physical measurements, calibration and testing laboratories, national measurement institutes, and accrediting, compliance and government organisations.


The Call for papers has been posted and we invite metrology professionals and other interested parties to submit. Details are available on our website here

World class speakers confirmed to date include Alain Rüfenacht from NIST, USA, world renowned thermocouple expert Adam Greenen from NPL in the United Kingdom and 2014 New Zealander of the year Dr Mary Quin.

Friday 16th October is the Lab Managers Forum where industry experts will show delegates how to increase the profitability of their department or business.


Queenstown, with its stunning scenery, huge range of regional activities and award winning facilities, is New Zealand’s favourite visitor destination. Surrounded by majestic mountains and set on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s natural beauty and tranquillity creates the perfect setting for learning about the latest technologies and techniques, and making new contacts.
