From all the conferences we’ve been to, this has been one of the better ones. I would say it’s the best.

It’s great to see a conference like this growing year in year out.

It was a great night last night. The gala dinner was fantastic.

This is my second IPWEAQ conference. There is a sense of purpose, a sense of achieving something and a definite pride in the works of public engineering.

As an IPWEAQ Board member, congratulations on what I believe was a terrific Annual Conference on the Gold Coast. It was really well organised from start to finish and members and non-members alike would have found it beneficial. Personally it was very enjoyable. Thank you for all the hard work, smart work and sacrifices you all made to pull it off!

Gerard Read, GWR Civil Engineering Management 

Congratulations on an excellent Annual Conference. Delegates from my branch took a huge amount of value from the content presented and networks initiated.
