Reasons to Attend the AWP Summit

Take part in AWP thought leadership in an information-sharing environment while networking with similarly-minded professionals that are driving forward the evolution of construction project planning and delivery.


Summit Highlights

• Thought leadership and professional networking

• Industry-developed panels and case studies

• Information-sharing and knowledge transfer

• Usable information you can apply to your projects

• Real-world examples of AWP in action

• Aligned with COAA Best Practices Conference 2019

• Supports COAA “2X Safe, 2X Productive by 2020”

Advanced Work Packaging began as an effort to foster a culture of excellence in execution amongst Alberta’s construction companies, and its success is bringing worldwide interest. We have responded to Alberta industry calls for a return of an AWP-focused event to the province. The purpose of the Summit is to assist Alberta companies by providing information about effective best practice implementation for improved project performance while also providing all attendees with unique networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities.

Further, AWP naturally lends itself to the advancement of the COAA Twice as Safe, Twice as Productive by 2020 initiative and we are excited to partner with COAA to execute this event alongside the COAA Best Practices Conference 2019. If you are a member of Alberta industry and you believe in better project performance, this event is for you.

Who Attends AWP Events?

Senior Project-level and corporate-level Decision Makers. Project Owners, EPCs, Constructors, Engineers, Specialty contractors, OEMs, Fabricators and SupplieRS.

The Advanced Work Packaging Conferences are traditionally attended by senior-level decision-makers representing some of the world’s highest-profile project owners, EPCs, engineers, constructors, technology providers and implementation support experts. The AWP events are also attended by researchers and developers that continue to evolve the best practices in collaboration with industry practitioners. AWP is applied on an organizational level and on a project-specific basis, therefore you will meet a variety of experienced individuals responsible for projects, project portfolios and corporate initiatives. You will also meet individuals less experienced in AWP that are seeking information and partnerships with others knowledgeable in this domain.


Beyond oil & gas: AWP is taking root in new industries and sectors

Between 2009 and 2013, when the WorkFace Planning Conferences were being held in Alberta, these events were primarily focused on oil & gas megaprojects and gigaprojects. Since the introduction and success of the larger AWP model, a broader range of industry sectors have taken an interest in it, and owners of projects varying in size and scope - particularly projects valued at $100 million and less - are looking for ways to apply AWP. In response, the COAA AWP Committee developed and published a Scalable AWP model, and we are finding more and more attendees of the conferences are from industry sectors outside of traditional oil & gas (such as the chemicals, power generation / utilities, and manufacturing / fabrication).
