Come for the conference, stay for the experience*

Adelaide, South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital, is bursting with culture, flavours, events and entertainment.

On its doorstep are world-famous wine regions and multiple opportunities to indulge in award-winning restaurants in the heart of the city. 

Adelaide is also the destination for this year’s International Public Works Conference (IPWC).

Presented every two years, ‘Public Works for a Global Future’ is the theme of the conference with a focus on asset management and emerging technologies. 

The conference will showcase a collection of international and nationally recognised speakers who will provide valuable insights and help you navigate the changing landscape of public works engineering.

With a full program, networking including social functions held at iconic venues, a comprehensive exhibition of products and services, technical and partner tours and activities, this is a conference offering something for everybody involved with public works engineering.

Commencing Sunday 31 October, the Assetic sponsored welcome reception is the first of many networking opportunities on offer.

The program features four concurrent streams over three days and three specialist technology forums including Smart Parking, Asset Tracking and Monitoring, and Street Lighting and Smart Controls which are all available as day registrations.

The 2021 IPWC promises an important and inspiring speaker line up including this year’s New South Wales Australian of the Year and Commissioner for Resilience New South Wales, Shane Fitzsimmons.

StalkIT Chief Executive Officer, Marcos Aritzi is also announced as a keynote speaker and will be presenting on the topic – asset tracking in the construction, utility, and waste management industries: optimising processes and fighting loss and theft.
