bushfire conference session

Now in its sixth 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 2020 is Stronger and Smarter – Lesson Learnt.

In 2020 the event will be a ‘hybrid’ event, with a live Conference supplemented by a virtual Conference that will live stream all sessions for those unable to attend in person or in case the live event is unable to be held due to health and safety requirements. Learn more about Virtual Conferences here >

Stay in touch with the latest regulations, best practices and technology, engage in panel discussions and workshops, earn CPD points and connect with others in your industry and related fields.

Together we’re building stronger and more resilient communities.
