Geelong was a wonderful host for the IQA’s 62nd annual conference. The city itself showcased a progressive region that supports infrastructure growth, tourism, agriculture and light industry. The theme – the Future of Quarrying was apt for the region as we had we the privilege of visiting Barro Pt Wilson and Deer Park Quarries. Two examples of the extractive industry working closely with a range of stakeholders for the advancement of the region.

The IQA would again like to thank our platinum sponsors Hitachi Construction Machinery, Komatsu and Caterpillar, and the official partner program sponsor Orica Australia. The support of our platinum sponsors enabled us to provide a very different social program that supported networking and captured the essence of Geelong.
