The Frame 2014 conference in May attracted a record 400 attendees, with the largest increase from the building design and construction sector.
Delegate survey feedback revealed very high interest in the topics with 98% indicating they would attend again, and delegates from design and construction preferring the conference be held every year to keep up to date with developments.
Conference Director Kevin Ezard said “With this strong display of support from the building industry we are holding a Frame Australia 2015 conference next year with the theme ‘Building with engineered wood construction systems’.
“There has been a global trend to greater use of timber in construction, and Australia is now underway with timber buildings up to 5, 7 and 10 storeys either planned or being built.
“Commercial builders investigating timber and wood construction systems for multi-residential buildings are finding these systems can be a lower cost option by up to 25% compared to traditional steel and concrete” he added.
“With this building market change gaining momentum, the complete supply chain for timber, wood products, prefabrication, and building materials has an exceptional opportunity at Frame 2015 to access this emerging new market for their products and services.
Kevin added “Sponsor exhibition displays provide face to face access for product information to delegates, promotion of company brands, and potentially to obtain new customers.
“Companies in the supply chain to building markets are invited to visit the Frame Australia website for details of the opportunities to participate in this unique event,” he concluded.
Sponsorship acceptances are due by November 28, 2014, to ensure sponsors obtain the benefits from participation in the promotion program leading up the conference.
