The 2019 APGA Annual Convention and Exhibition was a huge success and planning is already under way for the 2020 event.

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.

The 2020 APGA Annual Convention and Exhibition will be held from 17 to 20 October at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

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 provides knowledge and information to transfer to the next generation of experts.

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.

The APGA Annual Convention is an opportunity to present forward-thinking and practical ideas that stimulate discussion and debate and give guidance to the industry as it prepares for the future.

The Call for Papers for the Convention will open in December and close in February, so keep watching this page for the announcement.

APGA Annual 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.

The Exhibition is launched at a gala cocktail reception which precedes the official Convention Opening Dinner. As all morning and afternoon teas and lunches throughout the Convention are served in the hall, the Exhibition is at the heart of this event and exhibitors receive prime exposure throughout the event.
