Event Summary

Don't miss out on the upcoming 2024 CIA NSW Industry Breakfast - Circular Economy. At the CIA's conference in Perth last year, sustainability and the circular economy were the key talking points. Moving towards a circular economy in the concrete construction industry is essential for there to be real change in sustainability but it will require significant change in how we specify, design, supply and construct in the future.

This year’s CIA NSW Industry Breakfast will focus on these key aspects, and there is none better than our keynote speaker, Davina Rooney, CEO of the Green Building Council of Australia, to address our delegates on where and how we can start to see these changes.

This year’s breakfast will also be supported by the CIA NEXGen and CIA Women in Concrete groups in NSW. Liam Martin from UTS, will present on behalf of the CIA NEXGen group, and Karen Amery from Sika, and President of ACRA, will represent the CIA Women in Concrete. Both presentations will include details on what sustainability in the concrete construction means in their space.

The CIA NSW Industry Breakfast is an annual highlight on our event calendar, so be sure to register early. You can also book tables of 8 for you and your colleagues.
