#SAMP2017

10th Annual SA Major Projects Conference 2017

The 10th Annual South Australian Major Projects Conference will be held on the 25-26 July 2017 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. In its 10th year running, this event continues to be the largest major projects and infrastructure conference in the State, attracting over 200 delegates.

With a once-in-a generation infrastructure investment of $12.1 billion towards the delivery of major infrastructure projects for the state, the South Australian Major Projects Conference provides the perfect platform to get the latest project updates in addition to offering plentiful networking opportunities.

While South Australia recovers from an adjusting economy, the state government and industry bodies are looking to build a stronger infrastructure landscape, in order to future proof the economy. Although local manufacturing has undergone an overhaul, there are new areas of growth for the State in the sectors of defence, advanced manufacturing, tourism, food and wine and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Notable among these would be the Defence sector, where the Future Submarines Program is expected to provide a huge economic boost and generate jobs. Likewise, South Australia will reap the fiscal benefits of a boost in the tourism industry.
