The Trades Industry Conference was proudly presented by seven leading industry associations:

  • Association of Hydraulic Services Consultants Australia (AHSCA) QLD
  • Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Contractors’ Association of Australia (AMCA)
  • Backflow Prevention Association of Australia Inc. (BPAA) – QLD Chapter
  • Institute of Plumbing Inspectors QLD (IPIQ)
  • Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ)
  • National Fire Industry Association (NFIA)
  • Queensland Gas Association (QGA)

The two-day schedule was jam-packed with informative sessions, Q & A panel discussions, networking opportunities and social functions, including a Spring Racing Gala Dinner and Aussie BBQ Lunch. With streams specifically designed for each trade, there was a great mix of professionals who were able to come and go based on their schedule and interests. There was also over 30 exhibitors in the trade area, so there was plenty to see and do between sessions.

Platinum Partners Reliance Worldwide Corporation and Victaulic Australia were key contributors in making this event the great success that it was. There was also immense support from Gold Partners Austworld and CBUS, as well as Silver Partners Enware and Halgan.

The program had a strong focus on topical industry issues with informative and innovative speakers. Thursday’s keynote speaker, Paul Spinks, discussed micro-managing, how to inspire change and how to provide a tool kit that brings about purpose, direction, retention and meaning into the workplace. Friday’s keynote speaker, Steve Keating, had a different message to share regarding the future direction of Brisbane as a leading city with the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Development.

Other key speakers included Lindsay Walker, Director of Strategic Policy (Plumbing Drainage Tribunals and Special Projects) with the Department of Housing and Public Works, with a discussion on the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018, as well as Mike Essery, Acting Director of Strategic Policy (Building) from the Department of Housing and Public Works, discussing Non-Conforming Building Products. The hydraulic stream also proved to be very topical with over 80 attendees wanting to hear about updates in the standards and the latest developments in Legionella.

We hope this event has advanced the knowledge and skills of all participants and made an impact on the future of the industry. So for now, that’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this important industry event.
