It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 9th Austroads Bridge Conference (ABC) 2014. It will be held in Sydney at the ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park from Wednesday 22 October to Friday 24 October 2014, with a half-day technical tour planned for Saturday 25 October. ABC 2014 will be held in conjunction with the 26th ARRB Conference 2014, providing an exciting opportunity for presenters, delegates and sponsors to participate in both events. We look forward to welcoming you to the ABC 2014 and encourage you to register early and take advantage of the early bird and young engineers discounts as detailed on this website.
The conference will showcase the achievements of local and international specialists in the field of bridge engineering, as well as providing associated social activities and opportunities for networking. The conference will present a unique opportunity for our sponsors to promote products and services to a targeted audience, for the participants to forge professional connections and for Sydneysiders to welcome visitors from around the world. There are plenty of reasons to attend this unique event!
As with previous successful Austroads Bridge Conferences, the 2014 conference will have a particular emphasis on encouraging participation from young engineers. The committee has identified a special Young Engineers Award, and young engineers are offered a concessional registration rate as an additional incentive.
ARRB Group, in conjunction with Austroads, is privileged to be hosting this conference in Sydney and providing the opportunity to create a forum for bridge engineering information exchange and networking.
