With more than $3.5 billion of projects, over 1000 tender opportunities and all within 200km of Gladstone, the GEA Major Industry Conference is the must attend resource industry event in Central Queensland for 2018.

The GEA Major Industry Conference is highly regarded in the region as the key forum for current and future work opportunities with 2018 marking the 15th 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 2018 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 and mining industry. The conference provides a forum for these proponents to showcase their project quantum, timeline and contacts.

GEA is pleased to announce Aestec Services have come on board as our Principal Sponsors in 2018.
