IPWEA NSW 2020 Regional Forums


It is with a heavy heart and after a huge amount of consideration that we have been left with no choice but to postpone the remainder of our Regional Forums. This decision was made in the interest of public health and the developing situation regarding the COVID-19 virus.

Over recent weeks we have been working tirelessly with the remaining venues, the Australian Government Department of Health and other relevant bodies to ensure the safety and success of our Forums. Until recently we were confident that this could be achieved however, listening to expert advice the situation in Australia has rapidly deteriorated and we feel that postponing the remainder of the Forums is the only responsible course of action.

At this stage, we are in the process of rescheduling the remaining 6 Regional Forums (South West, ACT, South East, Illawarra, Metro West and Metro North/South) for Late-August/Mid-September. Venues will all remain the same and new dates will be announced ASAP. All sponsors and delegates will automatically be transferred to the new dates.

Thank you for remaining patient and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.



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

These Forums create an exceptional platform for local Public Works professionals to collaborate on upcoming projects whilst providing invaluable networking opportunities. Since their inception, the Regional Forums have educated numerous local professionals, provided innovative solutions to contemporary issues as well as assisted in bringing cost-effective solutions to all corners of New South Wales.
