The 2023 Victorian Major Projects Conference will showcase Melbourne as the cultural capital of Australia, and a state committed to world-class healthcare and a clean energy future.

The Victorian Government will see through the delivery of the infrastructure it says is key to supporting families and driving the State’s post-pandemic economic recovery.

Investing in infrastructure it says matters most to Victorians, the State Government has reaffirmed its commitment to crucial health and transport projects.

This includes the new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital, one of Victoria’s largest ever health infrastructure investments, part of a $15 billion health infrastructure program to be delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority.

Meanwhile, major projects part of Victoria’s Big Build forge ahead to ensure the timely delivery of the Melbourne Metro and West Gate Tunnels.

Melbourne continues to cement itself as Australia’s cultural capital with the recently announced $1.7 billion Queen Victoria Market Southern Precinct Redevelopment, to continue through to 2028 and deliver Gurrowa Place.

The ongoing Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation, also worth $1.7 billion, is Australia’s biggest cultural infrastructure project that will establish the creative precinct as one of the world’s greatest.

Along with these significant infrastructure programs, the conference will feature presentations on two of Victoria’s biggest renewable energy projects: Star of the South, Australia’s first offshore wind project, and the world-first Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain Project (HESC), that will create the world’s first clean liquefied hydrogen supply chain from Victoria to Japan.

Sports and Recreation Victoria will share insights into the largest football-specific infrastructure project in Australia’s history: The Home of the Matildas.

Projects on the program boosting the economy in the regions include Cannatrek’s new multi-million-dollar medicinal cannabis facility in Shepparton, and the redevelopment of the iconic Murray River waterfront in Mildura.

Topical themes and issues that go hand in hand with delivering big budget infrastructure will also be discussed during the two-day program via a panel and fireside chat, alongside designated networking sessions providing one-on-one exchanges between conference delegates.

Hosted by Expotrade, the 12th Annual Victorian Major Projects Conference takes place on October 10 and 11 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Click here for more information.
