IPWEA NSW & ACT State Conference

This three-day premier event provides a unique platform to discuss significant challenges and opportunities presented in the Public Works and Engineering sectors. Returning to the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley in 2021, the State Conference will feature numerous keynote speakers, a bustling exhibition hall, technical streams, engaging panel discussions and a variety of social events.

2020 Postponement Announcement

The health and safety of our Members, guests and staff is our highest priority.

Every year IPWEA NSW & ACT look forward to connecting and celebrating the Public Works community however, after careful consideration and in light of the ongoing COVID-19 developments we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Annual State Conference and Engineering Excellence Awards. We felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation.Delayed Postponed Clock Timer Svg Png Icon Free Download (#513377) -  OnlineWebFonts.COM
