Great Southern Press (GSP) was founded in 1989 as the publisher of Australia’s leading pipeline industry trade magazine, The Australian Pipeliner.

Over several decades, GSP grew a portfolio of industry publications including Pipeline, Plant and Offshore Projects (PPO Projects), Trenchless Australasia, Trenchless International, Pipelines International, the Journal of Pipeline Engineering, and more.

GSP began producing industry events in the early 2000s, launching the Southern Hemisphere’s largest specialist trenches technology event, No-Dig Down Under, and becoming a major partner in the world’s leading pipeline integrity conference, Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management (PPIM).

Today, GSP produces the Technology for Future and Ageing Pipelines Conference in partnership with the University of Ghent.

As a boutique event management firm with a long history of working in the pipeline sector, GSP is proud to produce world-class conferences and exhibitions for the sector, fostering international connections and knowledge sharing that is vital for the industry to continue its tradition of innovation.


Produced in partnerships with the University of Ghent and drawing on the history of the Ageing Pipelines Conference and the Pipeline Technology Conference, TFAP attracts top industry experts and is the world’s only open-access specialist pipeline and materials research conference.
