The 4th annual Seismics and the City conference was held on 27 March at Rydges Latimer Conference Centre. It was a timely forum for representatives of public, private and community sector organisations and interested individuals engaged in the rebuilding of Greater Christchurch in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010-11.

The 2015 theme was Creating a Greater Christchurch – Sketching the Bigger Picture. It connected the dots on a broad canvas and fill in the bigger picture of recovery and renewal as rebuild momentum gathers pace. It also provided rare opportunities for cross sector feedback, input and knowledge sharing to enhance the quality of high level strategic planning and implementation. The direction of the recovery is as important as the speed.
