Great Southern Press (GSP) is a leading producer of B2B magazines and events, with a suite of publications, several partnerships with industry associations, and numerous successful conferences and exhibitions in Australia and around the world.
GSP was founded by Barry Wood in 1972. At the time, Mr Wood was working in the pipeline industry and was passionate about producing a publication that would help communicate important industry news across the sector. This publication started life as a small newsletter and eventually became GSP’s flagship, The Australian Pipeliner.
These humble beginnings continue to play an important role in how GSP interacts with industry associations, event partners, and clients alike. GSP understands the passion of small business owners, and works hard to communicate news about advances in technology and the delivery of challenging projects to the broader industry.

Prime Creative Media will acquire The Australian Pipeliner and Trenchless Australasia publications, as well as the No-Dig Down Under event, from Great Southern Press as of 31 March 2021.
The acquisition fits well with Prime Creative Media’s approach of working closely with associations and other industry stakeholders to support the growth of Australia’s infrastructure. The Australian Pipeliner is the official publication of the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association, while Trenchless Australasia is the official publication of the Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT). No–Dig is a biennial event supported by the ASTT, as the only conference and exhibition dedicated to no-dig technology.
