The Building Products Industry Council (BPIC) and Lendlease are bringing you an impressive line-up of speakers over two packed days to help you tackle the blizzard of changes and reforms that are shaping the sector now and for years to come.
This two-day event with more than 120 senior building industry decision-makers expected to attend, will focus on current and expected technological, regulatory and economic disruptions. It will uncover new opportunities and most importantly, foster the development of effective strategies, And yes, we will also be talking about automation and cool emerging new tech applications in this exciting and fast-paced summit, which will also provide excellent networking opportunity for attendees.
If you think that the future of the construction industry is just about robotics, exoskeletons, autonomous vehicles, virtual + augmented reality, advanced materials and digital transformation, hold on to your computer mouse. We have entered an era where co-operative federalism has given way to “every-jurisdiction-for-themselves”, where churn within our political leadership and government institutions has diluted the building industry’s advocacy efforts, and where political leadership is failing to produce robust and properly considered industry policy. Combined with disruptive advances in building technology, the imminent mass-exit of senior technical expertise from the workforce, and rapidly declining public confidence in the building industry, we are in for a bumpy ride.
To help navigate these disruptive changes we’ve assembled an impressive line-up of speakers all focused on answering the fundamental questions of:
• Where is the building industry in Australia heading?
• What are the critical issues and how can they be addressed?
• How do we escape the political short term focus and plan for the long term?
