The Australian British Chamber of Commerce is delighted to return the Australian British Infrastructure Catalyst to Australia in 2023, and for the first time taking it across three cities – Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Our flagship programme will bring the leaders of Australia and the UK’s public transport, place making and city shaping communities together to share the leading practices on development, project leadership and management, and building engaging communities.

The programme will bring together the Australian and British infrastructure sectors including government, infrastructure experts, financiers and major project proponents, to share knowledge, best practice and foster collaboration with their international counterparts.
