PIANC Asia Pacific Conference

Message from the Conference Organising Committee

The Local Organising Committee and the Board of PIANC Australia and New Zealand invite you to attend the inaugural PIANC APAC Conference.

PIANC APAC is the new biennial forum for all PIANC members from Asia Pacific and beyond focusing on harbours, ports and recreational boating in the region. Non PIANC members are also welcome.

Our Conference theme “Port, harbour and recreational boating for today and tomorrow” reflects the growing worldwide recognition to place the natural environment at the forefront of every project as well as a growing emphasis on a social licence to operate.

PIANC APAC 2020 will bring together engineers, planners, scientists and researchers to focus on the technological, scientific, policy, planning and design issues related to our diverse and developing ports, harbours and recreational boating facilities. The first in an eminent conference series, PIANC APAC 2020 will be hosted in the vibrant city of Fremantle, Western Australia.

The Conference will be held on 16-19 June, 2020 on 30 Nov – 4 Dec 2020. During the Conference, PIANC APAC 2020 will incorporate concurrent streams facilitating the opportunity for discussion and networking. A trade exhibition will host the Welcome Reception as well as all morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch breaks. A Gala Conference Dinner is planned with multiple PIANC awards to be presented. In addition, technical tours and networking events will form part of the Conference.

A Pre-Conference Symposium, “Nature-based Solutions for Coasts, Ports and Estuaries” will take place at the Hotel Esplanade Fremantle on 15-16 June on 30 Nov – 1 Dec 2020.

We look forward to seeing you in Fremantle in 2020!
