26th June 2015 | Breakfast with John Wagner, Chairman of Wagners and Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise.
Event at a glance:
The opening of the Wellcamp Business Park and Wellcamp Airport at Toowoomba in November 2014 was a game-changing event for regional Queensland.
The airport itself is the first in Australia to be privately funded, and the first greenfield public airport in the nation to open in almost 50 years. In the months since its opening, the airport has announced deals with QantasLink and Rex Airlines to welcome passenger aircraft, as well as expanding its role as a regional hub for the agriculture and resource sectors.
Join us for an event not to be missed to hear from John Wagner first-hand about enterprising people taking infrastructure success into their own hands and strategies used to overcome the challenges of delivering high-profile infrastructure.
