A successful history

In the past ten years the biennial SEAPAC has come to be known as the go-to event for industry experts seeking the latest technical expertise, collaboration and networking on protection, automation and control practices. This year’s conference in Sydney will continue to deliver on this expectation and feature technical presentations, with utilities, suppliers, consultants and education organisations all key contributors. We are expecting this popular event to continue to deliver the know-how and lively discussion attendees have become familiar with.

Who should attend

Protection engineers and technicians, telecommunication and network specialists and SCADA system specialists, as well as operations and maintenance staff.

Exhibitors and sponsors

Sponsors and exhibitors have supported this event well, as they have found a high number of leading technical experts in attendance across a wide range of the industry organisations, including the major Australian utilities. A range of sponsorship and exhibition options will be available.

Following delegate feedback, we are maintaining the same format as in 2017 including the informal ‘stand up’ networking dinner on the first night. This ‘dinner’ is held within the exhibition space, providing delegates direct access to sponsors and exhibitors for the entire evening.
