RA Forum (Melbourne)

Venue: Glasshouse, Olympic Boulevard, Olympic Park, Melb

Our Melbourne Forum is Victoria's biggest and best one-day road transport infrastructure conference, run by industry and with an industry-driven agenda.

This year we'll be casting an eye over some of the big projects on the immediate, medium and far horizons, and look once again at how we optimally manage these projects in terms of our human resource capabilities.

Minister Luke Donnellan returns to the RA table as our keynote lunch speaker. We're also delighted to welcome Mr Sanjeev Gupta, the Executive Chairman of the GFG Alliance (the new owners of Arrium OneSteel), who will outline his perspectives on investing in the Australian marketplace.

This event is always a great day of networking and knowledge-sharing, so act quickly to secure your seat or corporate table.
