In its 39th year, this conference is the largest event for resources and energy lawyers in Australia and Asia Pacific. This year the conference is even more vital as resources and energy practitioners strive to successfully confront the issues and challenges facing these sectors.
The conference will be opened by the National President of AMPLA, David Marsh, Welcome Address by The Honourable Colin Barnett MLA, Premier of Western Australia and Keynote Address by John Langoulant AO. This will be followed by two days of business sessions which include a comprehensive range of topics from presenters around Australia and overseas. The Social Events Program will introduce delegates to highlights of Perth and allow networking and social engagement opportunities.
