FRIDAY JANUARY 20, 2023
After a three-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 13th Annual South Australia Major Projects Conference returns to the Adelaide Convention Centre in March. As the biggest conference of its kind in the State, expect to meet the who’s who of the people delivering the biggest projects.
The conference theme is Building South Australia’s Future, with the recent 2022-23 State budget allocating its largest amount of funds towards infrastructure – $18.6 billion over four years – that will power projects focussed on roads, health, and renewable energy.
Over two days, keynote presentations will focus on the biggest projects underway in the State, including a construction update on the $2.4 billion SA-NSW Interconnector, set to transform South Australia into a global force in renewable energy exports. Expect the latest information on the new $2 billion Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and the Adelaide Airport Terminal Expansion. Neoen, whose portfolio includes the Goyder South Wind Farm and the Hornsdale Power Reserve, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of major renewable projects, and SAGE Group will provide insights into the technology supporting Adelaide in maintaining its globally recognised intelligent city status.
CEO of SA Defence, Richard Price, will provide an overview of major projects in motion, and Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure Executive Sally Smith will discuss the Revised 30–Year Plan for Greater Adelaide and how it will transform the city. With the revitalisation of iconic Adelaide Central Market Arcade underway, Alex Hall, Principal of internationally renowned architectural firm Woods Bagot, will provide an update on the redevelopment. Sharon Gray, from Indigenous and Social Inclusion at CPB Contractors, will present a keynote address on delivering community value and social legacy through Indigenous participation in major projects.
Constantly seeking to promote informative discussion, the conference will also host two panels. On Day One, experts will focus on the importance of infrastructure planning embracing sustainable processes. On Day Two, an expert panel from the space industry will share their insights on space infrastructure. With South Australia home to the Australian Space Agency and Australian Space Discovery Centre, the State is recognised as the country’s leader in space technology.
The conference also boasts unique networking opportunities to support the development of crucial business relationships. With a networking event on Day One, as well as designated networking sessions on both days, delegates and presenters will mingle with key industry figures responsible for the biggest projects in South Australia.
The 13th Annual South Australia Major Projects Conference will be held on Wednesday the 22nd and Thursday the 23rd of March 2023 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
