The Australasian Tunnelling Society Biennial Conference was held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from 10th-13th May 2021. With more than 50 exhibitors and 440 delegates (70 from New Zealand), the conference was well attended.
On the morning of the first day of the Conference, Bluey Site Engineer Victor Ngo gave a presentation regarding Melbourne Metro and challenges faced in highly charged structures. Attendance was high, with some attendees having to stand at the back of the room.
By mid-afternoon, all delegates were present in the exhibition area, heading to the stand for a chat and a bag of lollies before heading to more technical sessions. The room was full and buzzing for the entire day, which also flowed into the welcome drinks that evening.
During the three days of the ATS 2020+1 Conference, many delegates had their first contact with the newly STRONGER TOGETHER Bluey and Master Builders Solutions team. The ATS Conference proved to be a great opportunity to finally meet face-to-face with the industry since the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’d like to thank the ATS team for a fantastic event, and we look forward to attending the next National Conference.
