About this event

The RedEye Future of Critical Infrastructure Conference

Join us in this two-day event, as leaders of industry take to the stage to share their vision and strategic priorities around the future of critical infrastructure, exploring the opportunities and key challenges their sectors face as they adopt and drive value from the emerging technology.

Throughout the two days, we'll be running sessions on topics such as current and proposed critical infrastructure legislation, exploring what it means for asset owners and how technology can deliver value in an increasingly complex geopolitical and cyber risk environment, as well as sessions where we'll share exciting product developments, gather feedback, and discuss opportunities we see as thought leaders and subject matter experts in asset data management.

Please note, this is a global dual-form event where we are offering a limited number of in-person tickets for attendance at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre as well as online tickets for those unable to attend in person.
