Your ticket to the 2023 Infrastructure & Construction Forum (ICF) unlocks two days of exclusive events, hosted at the Rydges Resort, on beautiful Wonnarua Country in the Hunter Valley:
Day 1 - Business Tradeshow & Networking Event
The Business Tradeshow celebrates the enormous diversity and capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses from every region of NSW, with networking and introductions made during previous tradeshows resulting in many contract exchanges.
Over 90 businesses will be available for delegates to visit and discuss their procurement needs, and several key stakeholder booths showcasing the programs and initiatives that government and industry offer to the infrastructure and construction sector, for example, training and skills providers. The tradeshow is fully catered, and a business lounge will be available throughout the event.
As day 1 draws to a close, delegates are invited to a casual dinner and networking event on the terrace; a perfect environment to unwind from the tradeshow, further engage and make new connections. Those who like a challenge can enter the ‘You’re in a League of their Own’ competition and try their chance a special prize.
Day 2 - Knowledge Forum
The ICF Knowledge Forum will consist of innovative presentations from key industry and government change makers, and Indigenous business showcases.
Delegates can engage with expert panelists to learn and unpack what local and global best practice Indigenous engagement looks like and how this can be applied within their own organisations.
The Knowledge Forum is fully catered and a business lounge is available throughout the day.
ICF Awards & Gala Dinner
As the forum draws to a close on day 2, delegates ready themselves for the annual ICF Awards and Gala Dinner; a mesmerising black tie event and the place to come together and celebrate Indigenous business excellence and industry advocacy.
