Greetings from the Pacific Power Association (PPA)!!   

The PPA Secretariat is pleased to provide you with the summary information on this year’s 29th Annual PPA Conference and Trade Exhibition which will be held in Brisbane, Australia funded by Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) through the Australia Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP), Asian Development Bank and World Bank. The PPA Conference will offer delegates a combination of speeches, donor presentations, technical presentations, Utility Board Members workshop, Engineers Workshop and the Trade Exhibition of products and services by our Allied Members. Each year the conference gains more participants and it is the largest energy conference in the region, focusing on all aspects of electricity in the Pacific Islands. The 28th Conference held in Rarotonga, Cook Islands in 2019 was attended by 278 delegates with 44 trade booth displays.

DATE AND VENUE

Each year the Conference venue rotates between the Northern and Southern hemispheres, which provides the delegates with the opportunity to re-look at their travel and prepare them for the next conference.
