For the first time ever, multimillion-dollar projects from north to south NSW will come together to present their projects to the state's resource and construction supply chain in one place where attendees don't even have to leave the office.
The resource and construction industry is continuing to power NSW's economy during the COVID-19 pandemic, with more than $12 billion worth of projects - including Clean TeQ's Sunrise Project at Fifield and the Inland Rail - presenting their procurement and work opportunities online at the Connecting Industry Conference.
The conference, run online because of social distancing restrictions, is on Tuesday, December 8 from 9am to 1pm and is facilitated via an Event App with live video streaming allowing attendees to network with presenting projects, speakers, delegates, and sponsors.
It's presented by Resource Industry Media and Job Skills Network and is designed to give the resource and construction sector the latest project and procurement information.
One hundred per cent of the profits from the ticket fees will go towards indigenous scholarships.
"The growth within NSW's resources and construction sector highlights the need for an event that links the state's major industries with our highly skilled supply chain," Resource Industry Media managing director Kieran Moran said.
Based solely on procurement opportunities, the Connecting Industry Conference, features some of the largest resource and construction projects in the state.
The projects presenting are:
- Australian Rail Track Corporation: Inland Rail.
- Clean TeQ: Sunrise Battery Materials.
- Carpentaria Resources: Hawsons Iron.
- CWP Renewables: Uungula Wind Farm.
- AGL: Newcastle Power Station; and
- Commonwealth Government: Snowy Hydro 2.0.
"The conference is intended to open-up new business opportunities and assist in developing business relationships during this crucial time of social distancing," Mr Moran said.
Proponents of the Sunrise Project, Clean TeQ chief executive officer Sam Riggall said the Connecting Industry Conference is an ideal opportunity for Clean TeQ to engage early in the project lifecycle with businesses in the procurement space.
"Sharing information on the Sunrise Battery Materials Project with those in the supply chain will provide suppliers valuable insight into what will be just around the corner once project funding is secured," Mr Riggall said.
