AAIC 2013


We are excited to inform you that the 3rd Africa Australia Infrastructure Conference (AAIC 2015) is scheduled for Thursday 5th March to Friday 6th March 2015. The conference time-belt has now changed from the third quarter to first quarter of each year starting from 2015. The change was in consideration of inputs from key stakeholders and a great opportunity for us to re-invent the annual forum.

AAIC 2015  will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

As demonstrated over the years, the Africa Australia Infrastructure Conference is designed to give Australian investors and developers a pathway into opportunities in the Sub Saharan Africa infrastructure sector.  The Conference is also targeted to give African Infrastructure stakeholders and various Government representatives a unique platform to present business/investment opportunities in their respective countries.

AAIC 2015 will feature infrastructure sectors listed below:

  • - Transport & Mining Infrastructure
  • - Power & Renewable Energy
  • - ICT & Telecoms
  • - Water & Sanitation Technology

and introducing

  • - Agribusiness.

AAIC Brief Overview

The Africa Australia Infrastructure Conference is hosted by OctoberFirst Consulting Sydney. The event is a significant forum that has attracted delegates from more than  15 African countries and major Australian infrastructure solution providers. AAIC 2013 featured key Australian and African infrastructure stakeholders and so far generated business opportunities worth more than US$8 Billion dollars.  The forthcoming conference in 2015 will create a bigger platform for African and Australian infrastructure stakeholders to meet, interact, challenge assumptions, cross-fertilise ideas and start partnerships.

AAIC 2015 will feature the following segments:

  • - 5 simultaneous breakout streams (featuring several presentations from African Government representatives and Australian developers)
  • - Case studies
  • - Keynote speeches and
  • - Panel discussions.


Expanded Participation.

The planning team of AAIC 2015 will for the first time invite Provincial and State Government representatives from nominated countries in all key regions of Africa. We will equally invite key Department representatives from State Governments and Territories in Australia. The AAIC 2015 team plans to engage more continental and national trade associations in Africa and Australia. All our expansion initiatives are focused on achieving wider participation and boost networking opportunities for delegates.

We believe the Africa Australia Infrastructure Conference (AAIC) 2013 report will give you insight on the second annual event outcomes.  Plans for the third AAIC are already in top gear. Our key objective is to expand our frontiers and involve more African and Australian infrastructure stakeholders.

In all, we are optimistic that the next AAIC will present yet another opportunity for African and Australian infrastructure stakeholders to meet again, exchange valuable contacts, challenge assumptions and start partnerships targeted at delivering win-win mutual business outcomes. You can be part of Africa Australia Infrastructure Conference.

"I enjoyed the variety of presentations which provided useful insight into infrastructure investment in Africa."
Mr David Luboff, Chief Executive Officer, Macquarie Specialised Asset Management Ltd.
"The conference brought together a wide range of practitioners associated with governance, development and business in Africa providing insight into diverse aspects related to infrastructure and was an excellent forum for networking."
Daniel Cramer, Technical Principal Contamination & Waste, SMEC Global
“Last year I presented at the inaugural Australia in Africa conference held in Sydney and hosted by Frank Aneke. It was a great opportunity to discuss with a high profile audience the significant presence WorleyParsons now has in Africa and the major projects it has helped deliver. The conference was also a very useful way to meet a number of public and private sector decision makers. I certainly found it a worthwhile event.”
Carl Scully, International Business Director Infrastructure and Environment, WorleyParsons
Congratulations to Frank Aneke and Di Fleming for continuing with the great work started last year in Sydney.
At last year's conference it was clear that the African Heads of Mission were supportive of this conference.
We were provided with interesting insights from African leaders in their field.
This conference is a unique opportunity to be transported into the sub-saharan Africa of the next generation at minimal cost.
Roger de Robillard, Barrister-at-law, President, AABC (NSW Chapter)
