The RedEye Future of Critical Infrastructure Conference


Welcome to this two-day event, where leaders of industry take to the stage to share their vision and strategic priorities around the future of critical infrastructure, exploring the opportunities and key challenges their sectors face as they adopt and drive value from the emerging technology.

Hear about topics such as current and proposed critical infrastructure legislation, exploring what it means for asset owners and how technology can deliver value in an increasingly complex geopolitical and cyber risk environment.


Please note, this is a global dual-form event where we are offering a limited number of in-person tickets for attendance at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre as well as online tickets for those unable to attend in person.
