The CIB World Building Congress 2013 will showcase some of the world’s best research and development in the built environment and construction sectors by a global research network of more than 5,000 members focused on innovation. This year’s triennial event focuses on the relationship between construction and society, especially how research helps maximise the contribution of constructed assets to social goals, and meet emerging social needs. Session themes range from engineering to architecture, planning, safety, marketing and law.

The Congress will represent more than 50 CIB Working Commissions and Task Groups, in session themes ranging from engineering to planning, architecture, safety, marketing and law.

This is an opportunity to network with academic, business and industry leaders and share and build knowledge from many perspectives. It is also an opportunity to visit Brisbane, the capital of Queensland and a city which continues to recover from natural climatic disasters that require significant investment, innovation and ongoing reconstruction.

Conference registrations are now open and the website gives all the details.
