7th Annual Victorian Major Projects Conference 2016
The 7th Annual Victorian Major Projects Conference will be held on the 19-20 April 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. In its 7th year running, this event continues to be the largest construction and infrastructure conference in the State attracting over 250 delegates annually.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Shaping Victoria’s Infrastructure for the Future”. Victoria’s record net interstate migration and fastest population growth rate, coupled with the capital Melbourne being ranked as the world’s most liveable city for five years in a row, have cemented the State as the place to live. Planning infrastructure to support the expanding population has therefore garnered utmost significance, with the State Government recently establishing Infrastructure Victoria, an independent, expert body that will identify and prioritise Victoria’s immediate and long-term infrastructure based on objective, transparent analysis and evidence.
With a record $22 billion allocated towards infrastructure in the recent budget to improve the long-term liveability and productivity of Melbourne and regional Victoria, there has never been a better time for the State’s infrastructure sector and the Victorian Major Projects Conference is the best place to acquire more information on the latest plans and infrastructure projects set to turn Victoria into an economic powerhouse.
The Conference will feature presentations on major infrastructure and urban renewal projects such as the Melbourne Metro Rail, Fishermans Bend, E- Gate, the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal along with projects in the pipeline across sectors such as education, health, water, energy, housing and smart cities.
The 2-day conference provides highly valuable networking opportunities where project managers, operators, contractors, consultants and investors can learn about what projects are in the pipeline for Victoria and capitalize on the business opportunities being created.
