2018 will see the launch of the new National Construction Equipment Convention (NCEC), held 15 – 17 November 2018, in Australia’s construction hotspot, New South Wales.

The construction boom in New South Wales appears set to roll on in coming years as the state’s economy remains strong. Going forward, Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) expects the value of construction work done to rise further from $52.986 billion in financial year 2015/16 to more than $54 billion in each of 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 respectively.

With a huge pipeline of projects cross the residential and transport sectors, reinforcing the signs of growth, there is no better time than now to bring the industry together for NCEC.

Proudly presented by the Construction & Mining Equipment Industry Group (CMEG), NCEC will give the industry a once-every-three-year opportunity to see ground-breaking innovations and hear what’s next for the civil construction and infrastructure industry.
