• Over the last few years Australia’s infrastructure industry has experienced significant growth with billions in funding and new projects underway and planned across road, rail, airports, ports, urban development and utilities.

Why attend?


We’re no longer in an infrastructure ‘boom’ – this trend is now the new normal of infrastructure activity needed in order to cater for an increasing population, aging assets and innovative new technologies. With new projects and opportunities comes new challenges, meaning it’s critical to stay informed on the latest in the industry.

The Critical Infrastructure Summit is the premier industry event for all stages of an asset’s lifecycle, from project construction, managing and maintenance, through to how to prepare, survive and thrive in the face of major disaster events.

Delegates will hear from industry leaders – those who are implementing emerging technologies;  creating new processes and cultures to significantly improve the management of their critical assets; organisations that have survived their own disaster events and emerged as stronger, more capable businesses; and those who are leading the construction of some of Australia’s biggest infrastructure projects.

If you’re working in or with Australia’s infrastructure industry, this is a not-to-be-missed event.

Conference highlights

Multiple speed networking sessions where delegates are guaranteed introductions to colleagues within the industry. These formal sessions are in addition to the multiple opportunities to connect with other attendees during the lunches, breaks and networking drinks.

Exhibitors from construction companies, tech providers and asset management-related companies showcasing the latest innovations in the sector. Find out about new and emerging technologies and processes for utility and infrastructure assets, and how best to integrate new innovation solutions into your organisation.

The Critical Infrastructure Awards are presented at the Critical Infrastructure Gala Cocktail Party, which is attended by senior leaders and experts from within the infrastructure community.

Networking opportunities

The ability to establish meaningful connections is one of the main drivers behind conference attendance.

Connecting with your industry peers is a great way to forge new partnerships, recruit future employees, and elevate the presence of your company.

With our reputation for quality content and industry engagement, The Critical Infrastructure Summit offers unparalleled access to senior decision-makers from infrastructure asset owners, utilities and the largest projects underway in the sector.
