BE Summit, DesignBUILD, Total Facilities and Digital Construction Week Combine for Week of Built Environment Education

Built Environment professionals will gain unprecedented access to cross-industry education opportunities at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from May 10-13.

Speaker series for DesignBUILD, Total Facilities, the Be Summit and the Digital Construction Week will offer a broad range of topics and speakers for professionals across planning and construction to technology and facilities management.

Over the four days, more than 90 speakers will present on subject matters vital to the future of Australia’s Built Environment.

While sustainability continues to be a strong focus for discussion, other hot topics include the latest innovations in technology, the future of hybrid workforces and essential updates on compliance.

Delegates will be offered the opportunity to keep abreast of knowledge in their industry plus delve into new topics and areas of interest in adjacent industries. As the Built Environment space becomes increasingly interdependent, the importance of broad knowledge is more important than ever.
