The conference examines the future of Gladstone’s resources industry, analysing the present and realising future potential.
IRR Conferences Resources Team general manager Richard Beattie said the conference is part of a regional mining and resource development series from the Surat Basin to Gladstone.
“It brings together the project developers, the suppliers, contractors and analysts that want to get the latest viewpoints,” Mr Beattie said.
An attendee at the conference, Aurecon Development leader Barry Berwick said he attended the event as Aurecon have a continued interest in the LNG industry in Gladstone.
