The NCEC conference program, running from 15 – 16 November 2018, will bring together industry leaders from around the world to discuss solutions to industry challenges and give attendees the tools they need to best prepare for the future project pipeline.

No other conference gives attendees the opportunity to actually increase their business and bottomline.

It’s evident that the civil construction and infrastructure industry is currently in a period of rapid growth, with a huge pipeline of projects underway and planned for the next few years. While growth is great news, the sector needs to be able to meet this growing demand while facing challenges around a shortage of skilled workers, safety issues and adapting to rapidly evolving technologies.

Presentations and panels at the conference will provide the link between construction equipment with the delivery of major projects.

With a theme of, ‘Think Globally, Act Locally’, the NCEC conference program will provide a forum for industry thought leaders to deliver compelling insights into:

  • On-site safety
  • The aging workforce
  • Project pipeline and industry outlook
  • Technologies such as drones, intelligent machines, autonomous vehicles, VR and holograms
  • Workforce capability – skilled labour shortages and training needs
  • Best practice in equipment
  • And a range of other key industry issues
