The Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused event where digital best practice and process meet. Building on the success of the 2018 Summit in Brisbane, and the 2019 Summit in Melbourne and Brisbane, we’re calling for submissions of interest for 2020 to be held in Sydney on Tuesday 18th August at the Aerial UTS Function Centre, as well as in Brisbane on Monday 24th August at State Library of Queensland.

The Future Infrastructure Summit is an industry focused, 1-day conference, short on sales and big on industry case studies and real-world application of Lean, BIM and GIS in Australia and around the world.
