Invitation to the Australian Steel Convention 2017 - Steeling Australia's Infrastructure
We are delighted to invite you to this year’s Australian Steel Convention to be held at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort on the Gold Coast commencing Sunday 17 to Tuesday 19 September.
With State Governments plans to invest collectively up to a whopping $115 billion on infrastructure works, the theme for this year is Steeling Australia’s Infrastructure. For the Australian steel supply chain's participation in this unprecedented commitment, we need to demonstrate why steel should be the material of choice in design criteria and how local inclusion can provide economical and compliant solutions for project delivery.
The Convention speakers have been carefully selected to provide insight into where the opportunities are and the cutting-edge smarts to being part of the action.
The ASI is also providing breakout streams on Day 2, providing platforms for industry sectors to discuss their issues and opportunities. These include:
- Fabricator session
- Steel Detailers' session
- Steel Shed Group
- Manufacturing and Distribution
- Welding Technology Institute Australia (TBC)
We hope you can join us in the pursuit of Steeling Australia’s Infrastructure.
