Early bird tickets are now available for the 2019 Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) Major Industry Conference held on Thursday, October 10.

Growth within Central Queensland’s mining, construction, renewables and resource sector highlights the need for an event linking the region’s major industries, infrastructure providers, planners and developers to Central Queensland’s highly skilled supply chain. The GEA Major Industry Conference, presented by Aestec Services, is designed to stimulate procurement and business opportunities; development of business relationships; and profit from doing business in resources and energy.

In 2019, the GEA Major Industry Conference will highlight over $5 billion of projects with over 2000 procurement opportunities making the conference the must attend resource and construction industry event in Central Queensland for 2019.

Presented by Aestec Services, the GEA Major Industry Conference, is highly regarded in the region as the key forum for current and future work opportunities with 2019 marking the 16th year of this significant industry event. In recognition of this milestone and in understanding the current needs of the market in line with the economy, GEA has continued to expand the conference scope.

In 2019 existing industry in the Region has continued to evolve in the ways they operate, this year's conference will reflect a ‘broader’ view of opportunities, will identify some up and coming ‘breakthrough’ projects, explore diversification for the Region and will place the onus back on the supply chain to think strategically, innovatively and of the ‘big picture’.

Speakers at the conference represent the region’s major industries, infrastructure providers and planners and leaders in the mineral processing, mining, construction and renewables industry. The conference provides a forum for these proponents to showcase their project quantum, timeline and contacts.

GEA is pleased again to have Aestec Services as our Principal Sponsors in 2019.
