The ACA Conference Technical Committee is pleased to announce that the 2018 ACA Technical Conference in Adelaide will feature a new Contractor Information ½ day hosted by conference supporter BlastOne at their premises in Adelaide.

The ½ day will feature information sessions on abrasive blasting and other contractor application and surface preparation tools that have advanced features and efficiencies. The complete program will be detailed when finalised.

The ACA is also pleased to announce that there will be special offers of attendance at the Conference Exhibition for local South Australian contractors and applicators and these details will also be advised once they are finalised.
