More Wire & Gas speakers confirmed!

Truly living up to the Wire & Gas promise of world-class training and education, a huge and diverse programme of presentations, seminars and panel sessions is shaping up for this year’s event.

Scheduled for August 23-25, the 2024 Wire & Gas convention will take place at The Westin Brisbane (111 Mary Street in the CBD), providing easier access and a broader choice of transport options for attendees than the traditional Gold Coast location, with a choice of five-star and four-star accommodation options to suit your budget.
