The Power Protection and Innovation Conference is an annual electrical engineering networking and seminar-style conference founded in Western Australia, focusing on our unique set of challenges and markets.

The conference is in its second edition, providing a platform to bring together electrical engineers from engineering consulting firms, mining and resources, oil and gas, and utilities sectors to learn and discuss new developments, challenges, solutions and products in the power and protection field. 

You will have a chance to hear talks from eminent speakers in the industry and presentations from leading technology companies, as well as network with electrical engineers from all over Perth and WA.
