Forecasts suggest that Australia’s population will reach 35.9 million by 2050. The majority of infrastructure required in the next 15 years has already been built, however, such population and usage growth exert an increased pressure on infrastructure operators to improve efficiency and maximise the value of existing assets.
In addition, the current age of innovation has its own set of challenges; asset owners and operators often find themselves struggling to balance stakeholder expectations, operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness, all while integrating new technologies into existing assets. 
  • With multiple competing interests, how can asset owners make the right decisions and effectively harness technology to future-proof existing assets?
  • What challenges exist in the current age of disruption and what opportunities are created by technology?
  • How can technology be embedded into existing infrastructure to maximise lifecycle, improve efficiency and reduce overall maintenance costs?
With digital technology transforming the way assets are being managed, the Innovation in Infrastructure Asset Management Summit addresses the challenges of operating old and new infrastructure assets in the 21st century and brings together the engineering and asset management community to share the latest innovation and technology solutions used to optimise infrastructure lifecycle and deliver top line and bottom-line benefits.
Pre-Conference Workshop: Optimising asset life cycle management and delivering better outcomes with data and digital tools
The explosion of data offers asset management practitioners opportunities to gather and use data throughout the asset lifecycle. However, the abundance of data and digital tools available can often prove to complicate things rather than simplify them. How can asset owners and operators gather relevant and useful data? How can this data be used to translate into actual strategy? How can technology systems be best utilised to improve asset processes? 
The workshop will cover these key fundamentals: 
  • How to use data more effectively to improve maintenance and operations processes
  • How to best assess financial costs of maintenance and renewal procedures
  • How to effectively integrate data, information and other technology 
  • How to leverage predictive analytics to ensure continuous quality, safety and reliability 
  • How to reduce deterioration and extend asset life cycle through scenario modelling and predictive digital monitoring

Raise your profile at this Summit

 Innovation in Infrastructure Asset Management brings together senior leaders from state and local government, construction, transport and civil engineering companies to discuss how to maximise asset lifecycles of the existing road, rail and community infrastructure. Extensive research with technical and engineering leaders from Australia’s largest asset owners and operators tells us that this discussion is relevant now because...

  • Population growth is on the rise and is placing increased strain on existing transport, infrastructure and community assets
  • Asset maintenance expenditure costs billions of dollars and is increasing with a growing and ageing asset base
  • There is a need for asset owners to rethink their strategies in the digital age

Why Sponsor?

What solutions can your organisation offer our audience to address the following challenges?  
  • How do asset owners select the best technology that will be the right fit for existing infrastructure and enable future planning, design and optimal operational efficiency?
  • What are the most cost-effective solutions asset owners can implement to be ISO 55000 compliant, extend the life cycle of the asset, while balancing cost performance and risk?
  • What tools and processes are available to enable the transition from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance? 
There is a limited number of event sponsorship and exhibit spaces available - all of which can be tailored to assist your organisation in creating a platform to maximise exposure at the event, and creating the opportunity to gain direct and personal access to the audience
