Sydney Water’s Infrastructure Pipeline and Supply Chain Expo 2024

Infrastructure for a 22nd Century City. Let's build it together.  

On the 13th of March 2024, Sydney Water is hosting the Infrastructure Pipeline and Supply Chain Expo for infrastructure delivery suppliers to showcase capabilities and share the latest technologies and industry best practices. 

The theme for 2024 is Infrastructure for a 22nd Century City. Let’s build it together. 

The theme draws on the significant infrastructure delivery program that’s forecasted by Sydney Water’s Long-Term Capital and Operational Plan outlining how we’re planning for the city of tomorrow, today.

Come along to connect with infrastructure delivery players, large and small, ask questions, have your say and take part in information sessions based on the latest learnings.
