The QLD WIQ Annual Conference has a long and successful history having successfully engaged hundreds of people to participate in networking/education events for the first time, provided leadership opportunities and profiled amazing career opportunities and leaders in the industry.

This year, our theme, 'Drilling Deeper', delves into the topics and conversations initiated under the 2020 conference theme Untapped Resources, where we discussed the technical, geological, environmental and human potential of our industry.

The 2021 conference will drill deeper into those aspects of our industry that will enable us to continue to build a creative, resilient, inclusive and adaptable workforce.  Additionally, it will provide an opportunity to network, share experiences and learn from engaging experts in their fields.

The IQA will continue to work with the WIQ network to look at the overall diversity and inclusion of our industry, encourage younger people to engage and look at ways of promoting the wonderful career paths within the industry as a whole.

We look forward to welcoming you to the QLD WIQ 5th Annual Conference 2021.
