Registrations Open for Be Summit Melbourne

May 5, 2021 Be Summit News

Australia’s leading built environment event, the Be Summit, is back this year with Victorian Treasurer, Tim Pallas MP, announced as opening speaker.

This one day event on Monday June 7 is being held at The Edge in Federation Square and while there are only 300 places being offered at the physical event, there is also the option of participating virtually via live-stream.

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 physical event also offers a much anticipated opportunity to network with peers at the Summit’s breakfast, lunch and post-Summit drinks session.

The Be Summit will utilise a proven and fully government compliant COVID safe event system.

Be Summit Event Manager, James Laing, said this year’s event is more important than ever with the industry being challenged by the health and economic impact of Coronavirus.

“There’s never been a more important time to be informed about the big issues and to keep up to date with the latest building construction technologies,” said Mr Laing.

“The impact of COVID and the speed in which changes are happening can’t be understated,” he said.

The MC for the Summit will be author, presenter and political commentator, Jamila Rizvi, and sessions include:
