bushfire conference session

Now in its seventh year, the Australian Bushfire Building Conference is the only event of its type for professionals involved in the planning, designing, building, landscaping, consulting, regulating, and certifying of buildings in bushfire-prone areas.

The theme for the Conference in 2021 is “Addressing the Tensions: Are we getting the balance right?”

Similar to last year, the 2021 conference will be a ‘hybrid’ event, with a live, in-person hub in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Alongside this will be a simultaneous virtual component through a dedicated conference platform. The hybrid conference will live stream all sessions for those unable to attend in-person or in case the live event/s are cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
