Having attended many of IPWEA’s international conferences in the past, I can’t recommend the International Public Works Conference enough. It’s the biggest Asset Management and Public Works event in Australasia, and the high-quality program, and fantastic line up of speakers is one not to be missed.

Come to Melbourne for IPWC April 30 – 3 May and take some time out before or after the conference to enjoy our beautiful City and world class wine regions. For those of you who live in Victoria, this event won’t be back for another 14 years so don’t miss the opportunity to expand your network beyond our State and like I have, develop life-long industry friendships and new career connections.

It’s also a special opportunity for young people who can only attend this world class event when it’s in their home state.
