In addition to showcasing the South Australian quarrying industry, the 2015 IQA National Conference – which will take place from 14 to 17 October at the Adelaide Convention Centre – will focus on the theme The Infrastructure Boom: Our Industry Building Communities.

According to the IQA, the theme reflects the positive outlook for quarrying in Australia and will consider the expected opportunities in the infrastructure sector in the near and immediate future.

“The IQA conference always focuses on quarrying practice with a speaker program tailored to be current, informative and thought-provoking,” IQA general manager Paul Sutton commented.

Delegates will learn about the latest developments and innovations in quarrying practices and equipment in the context of a variety of topics, including safety, project management, sustainability and community, economy and technology.

“Participating in the IQA conference program offers members an opportunity to demonstrate the positive work they do within the industry, highlight new innovations and open up important issues up for debate while educating and challenging their peers to consider how they can contribute to the further growth of our industry,” Sutton explained.

“I’d encourage all IQA members to consider submitting an abstract through our recently released Speakers Portal.”

Submissions close on Friday, 27 March 2015.
