The streaming will be complemented by an online app, which industry will be able to use as a comprehensive guide to all major projects underway in Queensland and those planned for the future.
Deputy Premier and State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Minister Jeff Seeney said MPC was an important event for industry.
He said the app and the live streaming would provide an opportunity for those who could not attend the major event to hear key speakers and be part of panel discussions.
“Last year’s conference was a great success with over 850 people attending and the opportunity to stream this year’s speakers and panel discussions will make the one-day event even more accessible,” Seeney said.
“The app provides valuable insights and useful information into major public sector and private industry projects, which are valued at $100 million or more, under study, committed, under construction or completed.
“A further highlight for the conference is the launch of the major projects map 2013, featuring a comprehensive list of private and public projects valued at $350 million or more across Queensland.”
The conference, sponsored by Thiess, will bring together the state’s leading decision makers and will provide an opportunity to hear first-hand how leading resource industry executives view the commercial horizon.
Some of the topics for discussion at this year’s conference include the redevelopment of the government precinct in George Street, Brisbane; Queensland Ports; realising the potential of state land; Queensland Airports; and emerging resources in the state.
