National Infrastructure Conference

12 CPD hours | Crown Sydney




Full program out now!

There have been significant changes in the global and Australian economic and tax landscape over the past year. We have seen heightened international conflict and the fight against inflation and higher interest rates.

We have seen increased focus on easing cost of living pressures, which led to modification of Stage 3 personal tax cuts and a continued focus on multinational tax measures and corporate tax governance.

Keep on top of the changes by attending the only conference focused entirely on tax issues affecting infrastructure.

Build your expertise in infrastructure tax issues and strengthen your industry network 

Investment in infrastructure is critical for creating the conditions in which our economy can continue to grow in the post COVID recovery period. With a continued focus and expectation on the private sector to develop infrastructure assets comes an array of tax issues practitioners need to stay on top of.  

The only event of its kind in Australia, the 2023 event attracted more than 150 infrastructure taxation professionals across the industry.  

First class presenters, first-rate technical program 

Our in-depth conference program will traverse all the latest topics and provide technical and practical insights from leading industry, academic, regulatory, and judicial perspectives. Hot topics include Stamp duty developments, FIRB, TARP and thin capitalisation reform.
