ACT Major Projects Conference 2023

22-23 August 2023
Hyatt Hotel
Australian Capital Territory



The 4th ACT Major Projects Conference returns to Canberra on the 22nd and 23rd August 2023 at the Hyatt Hotel.

With more than $7 billion in infrastructure investment to ensure Canberra continues to be one of the most liveable cities in the world, the conference returns in 2023 to provide delegates with existing and future major project updates, an analysis of important lessons learnt, and best practice solutions for the efficient delivery of infrastructure projects territory-wide.

With the Territory expected to reach half a million residents by 2027, the ACT government is investing in enabling infrastructure and driving private sector investment into renewal precincts, as well as new housing and commercial opportunities.

Infrastructure investment in the ACT has continued to create local jobs, contributing to the government achieving its target of 250,000 jobs by 2025 ahead of schedule.

The 2-day event will offer highly valuable networking opportunities where construction managers, project directors, consultants and investors can learn about what projects are in the pipeline across ACT and capitalise on the business opportunities being created.

Good conference, with diverse range of sponsors. Had some promising enquiries, more so than last year. But you can’t cater for everyone. Good job everyone”

Leo Hiley


This was a very well organised event, with regular information and updates provided to exhibitors in the lead up to the event. I will definitely be looking to have an exhibitor stand at future events.
