Civil construction event to launch in Sydney

The National Construction Equipment Convention (NCEC) will run from 15–17 November at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. It will feature an exhibition and conference suitable for the civil construction sector.

The NCEC conference program includes insights into the future of civil construction and how technology such as drones, intelligent machines and autonomous vehicles is shaking up the sector. There will also be discussions about other industry topics such as: safety, best practice, workforce supply and skill shortages.

One of the speakers, Deborah Keep, will take a different approach to the discussion around construction safety by looking at human-centred safety, which focuses on people rather than processes. During her presentation, she will give a rundown of how this can be implemented.

The exhibition features the latest equipment from more than 100 exhibitors, including Caterpillar, Clark Equipment, Toyota Material Handling Australia, Hitachi, Komatsu and Volvo/CJD, as well as a tech zone comprising Worksite of the Future, Jobs of the Future and Infrastructure of the Future.
