Aug 16, 2021 Be Summit News

Australia’s leading built environment event, the Be Summit, has combined its Melbourne and Sydney Events, moving to a free virtual event scheduled for September 10, 2021.

Almost 1000 people have registered for the Summit which will feature speakers from throughout Australia debating the path to recovery for the industry.

The program brings together Australia’s built environment leaders, government policymakers, and market experts to discuss a roadmap of recovery and pave the way for future construction and development within Australia’s built environments.

The Summit will be launched by Victorian Treasurer, Tim Pallas MP, speaking about the post-pandemic recovery and what the built environment sector can expect in the coming years.

New speakers for the virtual event include Matt Lovegrove (EY Asia-Pacific Markets), Tim Lawless (CoreLogic Asia Pacific), Nerida Conisbee (Ray White) and Dr Mark Burgess (CSIRO).

BE Summit Event Manager, James Laing, said the move to a virtual event ensures professionals across Australia and internationally can keep up to date with the big issues.

“This event gives free access to vital discussions about the latest building construction technologies and what the future holds for the building construction industries,”  said Mr Laing.

“With hundreds of people already registered, it’s clear everyone is taking time to keep abreast of issues at this pivotal moment in history,” he said.
