The 2018 Asset Management for Critical Infrastructure Conference is set to kick off on 12 September for two days of in-depth discussions about the most pressing issues in the management of critical assets.

The full speaker lineup and program has been released, with experts from water and power utilities, government, industry associations and consultancies.

An in-depth look at the current state of asset management

  • Day One of the conference will see thought-leading individual presentations on:
  • Learnings from the implementation of ISO 55001 at Sydney Water
  • Changing asset management requirements in the energy sector due to rapid sector transformation
  • Case studies exploring how to optimise cost against risk
  • Leveraging data with digital twins and IoT techniques
  • The future skills required of asset managers
  • Incorporating sustainability into asset management systems
  • New state asset management strategies for New South Wales

Day Two’s keynote presentation explores how to develop strategic asset management plans and overcome current challenges, before the conference is split into four targeted streams on asset management in the rail sector, corrosion, renewable infrastructure and trenchless technologies.

These specialised streams will run as moderated panel sessions with key senior figures from each area providing delegates with information specific to the asset management challenges and solutions for that topic.

The conference is then rounded out with a Super Panel which brings back the speakers from across the two days to summarise some of the key discussions and answer any burning questions from attendees.

Asset Management for Critical Infrastructure 2018 is the key asset management event across the utility and infrastructure sectors; nowhere else will delegates have the chance to look in-depth at these issues and learn how other sectors are overcoming challenges.

Exhibition and networking opportunities

In addition to the conference presentation and panel sessions, the event also features an exhibition showcase where delegates will see up close some of the newest innovation technologies, products and services that are changing the way critical assets are managed.

The conference and exhibition has been designed to allow for lots of networking between like-minded attendees. There are several speed networking sessions which are a structured and fun activity that gets conversations flowing and guarantees delegates will make new industry connections. This is in addition to opportunities during the breaks and the networking drinks at the end of Day One.

Bonus Stakeholder Management Workshop

Conference MC Steve Doran will also be co-hosting the workshop Beyond Stakeholder Management: Influencing the relationships that can make or break your project with Mirella Di Genua, Owner of Tre Sorelle Trading, on 11 September at Swissôtel Sydney, the day before Asset Management for Critical Infrastructure begins.

This full-day workshop is a great addition to the conference and will equip delegates with the tools and insights to effectively influence the identified relationships that have a vital bearing on asset management project outcomes. To register for the workshop, head to
