Well done to the Informa Team for delivering another fantastic Longwall Conference. Steve Cheyne, Dan Harrison and I enjoyed the informative sessions, while connecting with clients and delegates. 

It was great to be positioned at stand #4, the same location as last year’s event. We’re looking forward to attending next year’s conference to see what’s changed in our ever-evolving industry.


The 2024 Longwall Conference enabled us to share the journey we’ve taken over the past 12 months with clients and delegates, as we work towards embedding our FY24-30-year strategy. As I shared at the conference, our key focus is on supporting our clients in ensuring mutual success in the delivery of their advisory, capital and site engineering projects. Because if our clients are successful, our team is successful.

As a values-driven business, we ensure our interactions with our clients and our people are underpinned by our Waterline values. Which is why we want the best outcome for our clients’ projects and therefore bring an owner’s mindset to our engagements. Our clients also benefit from our team’s site-experience because we have an understanding of the realities of being on site. This enables us to be empathetic to our clients’ needs because we’ve been there ourselves, so we understand their challenges. Therefore we can help reduce their stress, enabling them to focus on other priorities while we take care of the rest. So, it was great to share this journey and business direction with clients and delegates who attended this year’s conference.


Congratulations to our 3D-printed Roof Support winners who were lucky to take home 1 of 5 of these asset models. The winners are: Brett from Anglo American, Aquila Mine | Dave from BMA, Broadmeadows | Robin from Eickhoff | Lou from the Australia’s Mining Monthly Magazine | Colin from Oaky North, Glencore. These 3D-printed Roof Supports always prove to be a hit at the conference and while you can’t have a real Roof Support in your study on display, you can at least have a 3D-printed asset model on your shelf.

If we didn’t get a chance to connect or you would like to discuss how Waterline can help you with your advisory, capital and site engineering projects, reach out to me below. Whether it’s a brand new project or existing one, our team is on hand to support you.

The team and I look forward to another fantastic Longwall Conference in 2025!
