PACIA National Conference and Gala Dinner 2015

Global ambition starts here at PACIA's National Conference and Gala Dinner 2015 in Melbourne from 27 to 29 October

The PACIA National Conference and Gala Dinner 2015 will shine a spotlight on Australia’s $40 billion chemistry industry and its importance to the national and global economies.

Join industry leaders, Federal and State Government politicans and senior representatives, researchers, influencers and aligned associations to discuss critical issues and ideas around industry growth, innovation and ensuring Australia’s future through chemistry.



The 2015 Conference theme Global ambition starts here: Strengthening value chains through Australian chemistry will focus on new ways of growing Australia's global presence through chemistry.

We will encourage robust discussions around the pivotal contribution of the Australian chemistry industry to the national economy, opportunities for Australian manufacturing growth regionally and globally, building competitive advantage around innovation and quality, and training and nurturing the next generation of highly skilled scientists, manufacturers and industry leaders.

Conference sessions will provide exclusive insights into the current political and economic environments and future trends globally and locally. Our program will also delve into key issues such as gas policy reform, technological revolution, STEM, diversity and industry's social licence to operate.
