UL cordially invite you to the formal opening of our new Auckland laboratory. The old laboratory building has been subject to a complete refit and we are proud to extend a welcome to our new, modern facility.

Due to space constraints within the working areas of the laboratory, the hospitality aspects of this event will take place at QBE Stadium (formerly North Harbour Stadium) where our regional leadership team will be joined by visiting UL executives in sharing an overview of what UL is doing today from a regional and global perspective, together with some specific topics of local interest.

Event registration and presentations commence at 09.30 am, with an informal luncheon being served from midday.

Transport will be provided between QBE Stadium and the UL laboratory for laboratory tours and demonstrations from midday.
