On behalf of the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) Executive and Local Organising Committee, I cordially invite you to the 2023 ANCOLD Conference due to be held in October in Far North Queensland.

The conference will be held at the Cairns Convention Centre, a stunning venue located within the same region as the World-Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.
This year’s theme “Dams: a Critical Resource” provides an insight into the importance of these structures to our collective health and prosperity. Whether viewed through the lens of water supply, energy production or minerals processing, dams play a vital role in sustaining humanity. We will explore these crucial functions with reference to the entire asset lifecycle, spanning design, construction and operational management. For the first time, there will be a full day workshop followed by three days of technical sessions, providing attendees ample opportunity to listen and learn from eminent and knowledgeable authorities within the industry. Supported by a splendid social program, the event promises to be a highlight on the calendar of all dams professionals for 2023.
As always, we gratefully acknowledge and value the ongoing contribution of existing sponsors of ANCOLD, and we encourage new sponsors to take up the opportunities and brand exposure that this conference can offer your business.
