11th Annual South Australian Major Projects Conference 2018

24-07-2018 / / 2 Days

Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, SA, Australia

The 11th Annual South Australian Major Projects Conference will be held on the 24-25 July 2018 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. In its 11th year running, this event continues to be the largest major projects and infrastructure conference in the State, attracting over 200 delegates.

With a once-in-a generation infrastructure investment of $12.1 billion towards the delivery of major infrastructure projects for the state, the South Australian Major Projects Conference provides the perfect platform to get the latest project updates in addition to offering plentiful networking opportunities.

While South Australia recovers from an adjusting economy, the state government and industry bodies are looking to build a stronger infrastructure landscape, in order to future proof the economy. Although local manufacturing has undergone an overhaul, there are new areas of growth for the State in the sectors of defence, advanced manufacturing, tourism, food and wine and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Notable among these would be the Defence sector, where the Future Submarines Program is expected to provide a huge economic boost and generate jobs. Likewise, South Australia will reap the fiscal benefits of a boost in the tourism industry.

Hyatt Hotel Canberra, ACT

Over recent years, a raft of important infrastructure projects have taken form within the ACT, highlighting the territory’s potential to transform into a thriving, community-minded, and sustainable hub.

The ACT Major Projects Conference returns for its third year, allowing experts and policymakers from the government and private sectors to provide key updates on these projects, in order to outline how the ACT can further develop into a prosperous territory, while efficiently adapting to an increasing population.

In 2017, the ACT Government committed over $2.9 billion to their Infrastructure Investment Program, promising new facilities and services, a growing economy, and a plethora of employment opportunities. An estimated $70 million in infrastructure upgrades for its education facilities, and $53 million for Stage 2 of Canberra’s Light Rail train network particularly signifies that ACT’s transformation is well underway.

This event allows attendees to be informed and updated on the ACT’s most important major projects, and provides a platform from which to make important professional connections and partnerships. Join us at the ACT Major Projects Conference to explore how these major projects will be delivered to ensure the continued economic growth of the ACT.
