2021 Regional Forums

'Unlocking Local Government Potential' 

For over a decade, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (NSW & ACT Division) has steered the conversation across the Engineering industry through the annual Regional Forums.

The Regional Forums are one day, seminar style events held in twelve different towns across New South Wales and the ACT. Under the theme 'Unlocking Local Government Potential', Partners and Suppliers of the Public Works Industry present topical case studies, demonstrate their latest products/technologies, share their experiences, discuss emerging challenges and provide innovative solutions for ongoing projects.

Immerse yourself in Public Works innovation and connect with local peers like you have never before. 


Your wellbeing is IPWEA NSW & ACT's first priority.

All Regional Forums will follow strict COVID safe policies to ensure your health and safety and will have complimentary face masks as well as hand sanitiser. 

If you are from an active COVID hotspot, you may be refused entry to the venue. Please check current COVID locations on the NSW Health website before you register for this event.
