The Queensland construction and infrastructure industry is full of growing businesses and keen apprentices, all of which are spread across projects throughout the private and public sectors. To ensure these people and companies are all working towards common goals and united under a guiding focus, it’s important to bring them all together. This is exactly what the Queensland Infrastructure Projects Conference intends to do.
Scheduled for October 25-6 and hosted at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, the event will see key figures in the industry outline how infrastructure development will continue to evolve across Queensland. It’s an event that’s expected to generate excitement around apprenticeship opportunities and showcase the developments that Queenslanders can look forward to in the near future.
With speakers ranging from those in charge of leading major infrastructure projects to politicians with a desire to lead Queensland’s development into the future, it’s an event few can afford to miss.

With a career that spans a number of transport and logistics roles in Queensland’s private sector, Tracey is well aware of what the state requires if it is to continue developing effective infrastructure projects.

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation Chairman Peter Beattie
Former Premier Peter Beattie will provide attendees with an update on one of Queensland’s most important projects, the Carrara Sports Precinct. The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be one of the biggest sporting events held in Queensland in the coming years, so world-leading infrastructure is an essential element to put on display.
With the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre set to be completed well before the Games begin, conference attendees should be able to look forward to a positive update from Mr Beattie.
Building Queensland CEO David Quinn
Like most states and territories around Australia, Queensland boasts a healthy pipeline of upcoming infrastructure projects. Prioritising the developments that are most essential to the state comes with certain levels of difficulty.
No stranger to presenting at conferences, David Quinn will run attendees through the projects that will be significant priorities for Queensland in the near future. These insights will be extremely valuable for those seeking apprenticeships in Queensland.
The above are just some of the many speakers attendees can look forward to at the Queensland Infrastructure Projects Conference 2016, an event that will reinforce why everyone is excited about Queensland’s future.
