Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre Queensland

The 52nd Annual Convention of the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA) is scheduled to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 17 to 20 October 2020. While COVID-19 means that large gatherings cannot be held at the moment, we are pushing ahead with plans for this event. We hope that the timing may mean that it will be able to go ahead.

Our scheduling in the lead-up to the Convention may differ to previous years as we do our best to manage uncertainty. So just keep checking this page to find out the latest news on what we hope will be another fantastic pipeliner event.

Papers at the 2020 Convention will cover a range of issues in the theme: New Decade: New Perspectives.

APGA’s Annual Convention brings together participants from all sectors of the pipeline industry as well as other industries associated with natural gas and the transportation of energy, slurry and water. This major annual industry event provides a wealth of information in the business sessions, and the social events allow for extensive networking opportunities. The Australian pipeline industry is respected worldwide and APGA’s broad membership base excels at knowledge transfer and sharing across the industry.

The business sessions will include papers covering pipeline operations, project updates, training, research, environmental challenges and safety issues. Issues surrounding gas policy and gas markets are increasingly topical, generating much interest and debate about the role of the transmission sector and the challenges of gas supply for the domestic market.

APGA Exhibition

The Exhibition at the APGA Annual Convention provides companies with an opportunity to display their products and services to the pipeline industry.

The APGA Annual Convention and Exhibition has developed a reputation as a must attend event for the gas, oil, water and slurry pipeline industry. Attendees include chief executives, pipeline managers, industry professionals and consultants, technical, commercial and legal personnel, engineers, health, safety and environmental managers and government representatives from within Australia and overseas.

APGA’s 2019 Exhibition was very successful with more than 70 stands. The 2020 Exhibition will again be the centre of attention, with the official Exhibition opening to take place on Sunday 18 October. On the evening of the Opening Dinner, pre-dinner drinks will be held in the exhibition area, as will all morning and afternoon teas and lunches throughout the Convention. All exhibitors will be listed in the Convention Program and receive trade invitations to send to potential customers. They will also receive discounted registration to the Convention and publicity in APGA’s official publication, The Australian Pipeliner.
