Tasmanian Major Projects Conference to Return in April
Posted on by Carmen
Following a difficult 2020, Expotrade is thrilled to announce that the 3rd Tasmanian Major Projects Conference is scheduled to take place in April 2021.
Returning to Tasmania after a prolonged hiatus, the conference will explore the projects being delivered under the state’s landmark investment of $5 billion towards infrastructure events.
Mayor Kristie Johnston of Glenorchy City Council will discuss the projects taking place in Tasmania’s southern growth area. Touching on the Hobart City Deal Mayor Johnston will give delegates a look at the relationship between state and federal governments, provide a detailed overview of the legislative framework that has been established to drive strategic decision making across the region, and a little insight into why Glenorchy City Council is affectionally referred to as one of the Greater Hobart Councils.
From the office of Tourism Tasmania, Chief Executive Officer John Fitzgerald will explore the positive effect of tourism on the states revenue, and the massive impact that COVID-19 has had on Tasmania’s healthy tourism visitor economy.
Attendees will also be pleased to note that they will receive a firsthand project update of the Robbins Island Renewable Energy Park by the Chief Operating Officer of UPC Renewables, David Pollington. Pollington will unpack the $1.6 billion project that is on track to make significant contributions to state and national energy generation needs.
In a not to be missed event, delegates will have the opportunity to hear from Mary Massina, CEO at Macquarie Point Development Corporation, Bess Clark, General Manager of Project Marinus at TasNetworks, Andrew Kneebone, CEO of Tasmanian Irrigation, and many more senior-level executives.
Come along to hear updates on a plethora of public and private projects being delivered all across the Apple Isle. Providing contractors and investors with a wide-ranging expert view of what infrastructure projects are currently underway, attendees will also have the opportunity to experience hours of networking sessions spread out across the events two days.
The 3rd Tasmanian Major Projects Conference will be held on the 20 – 21 April 2020 at the Wrest Point Convention Centre in Hobart. With limited seating available, you’ll want to book now!
