The PMI Australia Chapters have collaborated to present an annual national conference that will provide a platform for professionals, academics and community representatives to share knowledge, experience and professional camaraderie; whilst also recognising and acknowledging professional excellence via the PMI Australia Annual Awards. The 250 delegate inaugural conference, held in 2013, was a successful beginning for what has become a firm annual event in the project management calendar.
PMIAC is now Australia’s Premier Project Management Conference and showcases the latest ideas and thinking around key project management topics to the Australian market.

The theme ‘Change the Game’ will be underpinned by four streams: Project Trends and Innovations, plus the PMI Talent Triangle™ skills of Leadership, Technical, Strategy and Business.
