DRILL 2017 – Innovation to the core – October 2017



11-12 October, 2017



Novotel Twin Waters Resort
270 Ocean Dr, Twin Waters QLD 4564


ADIA is pleased to announce that DRILL 2017 is being held on the Sunshine Coast on 11 and 12 October at the relaxing Novotel Twin Waters resort. The theme of the conference and exhibition is ‘Innovation to the core’.

It has been three years since the previous ADIA conference and we anticipate there will be many significant new industry developments showcased.

The event management team has chosen a venue that will provide delegates and exhibitors with a full range of world-class conference and indoor/outdoor exhibition facilities. All in a resort style informal setting.

The Sunshine Coast is a major tourist attraction, but is also the home base for many drilling personnel who work on a mine site fly-in and fly-out basis. The exhibition areas will be open with free admission at designated times each day, so drilling personnel can attend and meet with the exhibitors.

The full conference program will feature a welcome cocktail party and themed dinners on both evenings. There will be an interesting and highly informative range of presentations, covering the needs of different drilling sectors.

  • • Craig Lavrick – Director Global Drilling Services – Barrick Gold
  • Les Cox – Regional Manager – AMEC (Association of Mining & Exploration Companies)
  • Soren Soe – Drilling Program Leader – DET CRC
