“The most innovative, informative and inspiring Asset and Reliability Conference in Australia”


The world has changed. And the asset management shift is on. For the first time at Mainstream, 5 selected start-ups will compete in a pitch competition. This is their chance to pitch their ideas, and your chance to view (and vote!) cutting-edge technology.

We already have a plethora of submissions – from an intelligent platform that uses NLP and machine learning to extract information from technical manuals and maintenance history, to an IIoT platform that monitors and diagnoses the health of industrial assets. So, watch this space, rev up your tech engines and catch the new ideas and innovations powering reliability, maintenance and asset management.


Between 19 - 23 February we will be hosting roundtable discussions (RTDs) in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth – focused on the people, processes, innovations and technology transforming Asset Management and Reliability. Each RTD is limited to 30 people, runs for 3 hours and includes: morning coffee and delicious snacks, lunch, awesome networking and lively debate and discussion. The RTDs are complimentary and vendor-free.
