10th Annual Coast and Marine Structures 2018

Maximising Trade Opportunities through Port Optimisation, Innovation and Transformation

Australia’s trade balance in 2017 hit 1.74 billion, exceeding the forecast by 0.54 billion. This demonstrates the rising trend in trading activities leading to accelerated port operations. Following this rapid growth in trade, the need for port optimization and infrastructure development to support increased trade opportunities and drive regional growth is more urgent than ever before.

With this in mind, our 10th Annual Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2018 will focus on how to optimise port operations, proactively plan to accommodate larger vessels, manage assets and maintain pace with the international market through planning, designing and managing port infrastructure.

Key learning areas will include:

  • Effectively manage your assets to extend the life of existing wharf structures
  • Future proofing structures and increasing operational efficiency through the adoption of innovative new technology
  • Accommodating larger vessels and increasing trade opportunities through the delivery of new build and retrofit port infrastructure
