The AECOM early professional Connect Committee invites you to join them for our annual Networking for the Future event: Building our Future with Sustainable Infrastructure

South East Queensland (SEQ), with Brisbane at its centre, is experiencing a dramatic spike in population growth and economic change. Large infrastructure projects such as Cross River Rail, Queen’s Wharf and Brisbane’s new runway are diversifying our region and enhancing our liveability and sustainability.

With the chance of a combined SEQ Olympic bid on the horizon, leading to greater economic development and infrastructure development opportunities, how do we identify, plan and prioritise this critical infrastructure with sustainability and future legacy in mind?

Join us as our industry specialists share their insights on this exciting topic at this year’s Networking for the Future event.  

Networking for the Future aims to provide early professionals with the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and other professionals, to create lasting networks and share knowledge across all levels of industry.

Venue: AECOM Brisbane – Level 8, 540 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley
