Ports Australia has welcomed Anthony Donald, CEO of TasPorts as the newest Deputy Chair to the Board of Directors, while farewelling the outgoing Deputy, Chris Leatt-Hayter who retired from his role as CEO at Fremantle Ports in late 2020.
Ports Australia holds two major events. The Ports Australia Biennial Conference and the Australian Ports Business and Operations Conference.
The Ports Australia Biennial conference is held once every two years. The event is the premium national maritime event and brings together leaders from across the Ports, maritime services, business and political spectrum.
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, Ports Australia's Biennial Conference scheduled for mid-September has been postponed due to concerns around COVID-19. A 2021 date is yet to be determined.
This year we hosted the inaugural Australian Ports Business and Operations Conference. This event is held in the opposing year to our Biennial Conference and is designed for those involved in the daily running of Ports and maritime.
Townsville was the host city for 2019 with the event held over two days, June 26th and 27th.
