2023 Conference and Excellence Awards Dinner

Meet our Keynote!

When we chose “Time to Move Forward” as a theme, we knew we needed Australia’s leading Futurist to speak at the conference, and we got him! We are so excited to have Steve Sammartino as our keynote speaker!

We know that Public Works Engineering has been going through a period of change, much of it caused by new ‘disruptive’ technology. Steve is going to help us understand what this means for our collective future, and give us some great things to look forward to!

Conference Details

Join us on September 8 for our annual IPWEA SA State conference to hear how councils are operating in this new era, using digital transformation, sustainable solutions, and AI to deliver services more effectively and sustainably than ever before. By re-engaging with communities and embracing a new way of thinking, we can overcome challenges and achieve a better, more cost-effective future.

With the theme of ‘Time to Move Forward’ this conference will provide valuable insights into how to navigate the rapidly changing industry and capitalize on emerging opportunities. Please join us to share ideas, learn from one another and find out how others are rethinking and reshaping the way we work in this post pandemic world.

We have dozens of speakers and are busy finalizing the full program – we will be sharing it by email and there will be a link here when it is complete. But why wait? You know it’s going to be great. Register now for the best price!
