DRILL 2014
Recognising Opportunities

DRILL 2014 is the Australian Drilling Industry Association’s (ADIA) flagship national conference and only occurs every two years.
metzkeIt’s Australia’s only drilling conference catering for the full range of onshore drilling sectors: groundwater, minerals exploration, geotechnical / environmental, HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling) and CSG (Coal Seam Gas).
Over 500 delegates – most of them key decision-makers in drilling companies – will gather on the Gold Coast from 19-22 August for the chance to build relationships with key decision-makers in the drilling industry.

ADIA encourages and invites media outlets to attend DRILL 2014 at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre.

An official media pass is a means of identification and allows you free access to the exhibition hall, plenary sessions and workshops/seminars. It also makes it possible for DRILL 2014 officials to extend every courtesy to you.

All accredited media personnel will be issued with official media passes which must be worn and displayed at all times.

We are offering two types of media passes:

  • Full: 19-21 August, 2014
  • Opening address, Minister Ian Macfarlane, only: Wednesday 20 August, 2014

Please send applications for media accreditation – by 5pm, Wednesday 6 August, 2014 – to ensure your authorised access to DRILL 2014.

The DRILL 2014 organiser – Australian Drilling Industry Association (ADIA) – is solely responsible for determining which organisations and individuals will receive accreditation.
