7th Annual WA Major Projects Conference 2016
The 7th Annual WA Major Projects Conference – “Rebuilding after the Mining Boom”, will take place on 6 & 7 April 2016 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. In its 7th year running, the Conference attracts over 350 delegates from across Australia and continues to be the premier infrastructure event in the State providing a platform to discuss the progress, challenges and share best practice solutions for WA’s infrastructure sector.
The mining downturn although affecting the State’s economy, is bringing with it an enormous opportunity for economic reform and investment in productive infrastructure. The 2015 budget has committed to a $24.1 billion infrastructure program over the next four years, including $6.3 billion for the current financial year to support jobs and growth across the State. There has never been a greater emphasis on the infrastructure sector for WA and the 7th Annual WA Major Projects Conference is the best place to acquire the latest information on the major infrastructure projects expected to drive the State’s economy. Key projects that will be discussed at the Conference include the Forrestfield Airport Link, the Perth Freight Link, Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct, Riverside Redevelopment Project, Progressing Infrastructure for Regional WA, The Agricultural White Paper - Impact and Opportunities for WA along with projects across sectors such as health, education, housing, ports, water and energy.
Featuring presentations from key industry specialists from the government and private sectors the 7th Annual WA Major Projects Conference is a must attend event for industry professionals seeking the most up-to-date information on the State’s infrastructure projects, policy issues, research findings and best practices. The 2-day event will offer highly valuable networking opportunities where construction managers, operators, contractors, consultants and investors can learn about what projects are in the pipeline and capitalise on the business opportunities being created.
