Timber Offsite Construction conference and exhibition, planned for November 2021, will now be held in June 2022.
With the uncertainty of lockdowns and travel restrictions expected to continue beyond the end of the year, event organiser Frame Australia took the difficult decision to postpone the event to next year.
“We reluctantly decided that, for all concerned, it would make sense to hold the event in 2022,” said event founder Kevin Ezard. “The pandemic situation has created too many uncertainties, and many other events have also been postponed.”
For the past 23 years, a key feature of the event has been the opportunity to personally network and interact with colleagues in the industry. This requires ‘in-person’ participation in a safe environment.
There is wide interest the conference program which will highlight many exceptional examples of innovation in design and construction of engineered wood and mass timber buildings.
“We are very excited by the program,” said Kevin Ezard. “Global growth in the industry has been remarkable, with construction projects of massive scale underway in many countries. Projects in our program will include Asia’s largest mass wood building under construction in Singapore, and the world’s tallest 40-storey building currently underway in Sydney. This growth is also driving the development of new mass timber manufacturing plants to meet demand.”
With its ‘hybrid’ format, the conference will attract broad participation, including ‘virtual’ delegates from around Australia and the rest of the world.
A major feature of the event is the exhibition area with over 30 exhibitors featuring the latest technologies, software, manufacturing equipment, building products and systems.
The event will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday 21-22 June 2022 at Crown Promenade Melbourne.
