About the Conference

Proudly organised by Australia’s key government and industry agencies responsible for Australia’s marine environmental protection arrangements, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and the Australian Institute of Petroleum invite you to attend the international oil spill conference for the Asia‑Pacific region, Spillcon 2016.

Spillcon 2016 will be held in Perth, Western Australia 2-6 May 2016.

Keeping with its theme - Global, Regional, Local - Spillcon 2016 will bring together local, regional and global environmental and shipping representatives across industry, government and non-government organisations to provide an avenue to discuss issues including cause and prevention, preparedness, response management and environmental issues. A raft of high calibre national and international speakers will address the conference on their particular areas of expertise.

Spillcon 2016 will also profile an expansive number of exhibitors and equipment and include an impressive on-water display. A separate one-day Response Issues Seminar will be held on the fifth day of the conference, which will provide an excellent opportunity for interactive debate between presenters and delegates.

Triennial oil spill events

Spillcon operates in cooperation with the International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) in the United States, and Interspill in Europe, each operating in a three-year cycle.

Sponsors and organisers of all three conferences believe this alignment enhances regional and global knowledge sharing capabilities and provides greater resources for addressing global oil spill issues facing the industry.

These conferences provide a venue for experts from around the world in spill prevention, preparedness, response and restoration to share information in a common forum. These conferences will continue to provide a unique opportunity for members of industry, government and the service sector to keep abreast of all major developments in the field and interact with subject matter experts.

The next IOSC event will be held 2017.

The next Interspill event will be held 2018.
