Established more than 50 years ago by the Institute of Public Works Engineers NSW (IPWEA), CIVENEX was developed as an industry exhibition and forum for public and private sector engineers and contractors associated with development and infrastructure.
“Today, CIVENEX continues as one of Australia’s key annual sources for review of equipment and services that contribute to productivity in building communities,” said IPWEA’s Stuart Macleod.
“Seminars to be held at CIVENEX 2012 will feature high profile expertise and focus on issues of keen interest to local government decision-makers and contractors. Matters such as OH&S, risk management and procurement probity will take centre stage and are expected to be a major attraction for visitors,” he added.
Frank Sticka, IPWEA’s CIVENEX event manager pointed out, “Visitors to trade exhibitions tend to be results oriented and attend exhibitions because they have specific needs. They spend their limited time and money looking for ways to make their work easier or more profitable.
“Exhibitions are just as much about establishing and maintaining business relationships. Customers don’t care whether the equipment is the biggest or the latest. They want to know if it will do the job; if it is dependable, cost effective, that the exhibitor will be able to provide ongoing support and most importantly, that can trust the company to be fair in future dealings.”
CIVENEX 2012 is being held on 16 and 17 May at the Western Sydney Dragway, Eastern Creek, Sydney.
