Register online now to reserve your place at Queensland's premiere major projects and infrastructure event.

The Major Projects Conference will be held at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre, Thursday 7 November, and is your key to keeping your finger on the sector's pulse, networking with industry leaders and harnessing business opportunities.

The one-day program will give conference-goers the opportunity to hear first-hand how leading resource industry executives view the commercial horizon.

In a coup for Queensland, Phil Ruthven, prominent business, social and economic strategist and futurist, is confirmed as the keynote speaker.
