Five reasons you can’t miss the 2022 Sustainability Summit

The 2022 Sustainability Summit is almost here, coming to Sydney and online on Thursday November 10 and we can’t wait to welcome the industry back for an unmissable day of thought provoking and inspiring conversations about the most pressing challenges facing the world of sustainable built design. Sydney’s Shangri-La hotel will play host to delegates from around the country (and tuning in online) who are coming together with the shared goal of improving the sustainable outcomes of the built landscape locally and internationally.

After two years of purely digital events, it’s never been more important to have the industry’s leading minds in one room, setting the agenda for the future of Australia’s design landscape. It’s in conferences like these that ideas are uncovered and plans are put into action, where each attendee can come away with practical solutions that can be used to accelerate them on the path to decarbonisation.

With a packed schedule featuring the people you want to hear from, now’s the time to secure your place at the 2022 Sustainability Summit. With physical allocation nearly exhausted, make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to take a front seat to the future of Australian design and architecture.

Here’s five reasons why you can’t miss the 2022 Sustainability Summit

  1. Seven Formal CPD Points

The Sustainability Summit is an event built off real learning outcomes, with each topic selected and curated according to key areas of knowledge within the sustainable built environment space. But don’t take our word for it – each session within the conference is accredited with a formal CPD point, meaning attendees can walk away with a massive seven formal CPD points for their architecture accreditation.

Each session will touch on different performance criterias and cover different topics, ensuring your CPD accreditation offers a holistic insight into the current state of our built landscape.

  1. Prizes

However you’re attending the Sustainability Summit, you’ll be in with a chance to walk away with a ticket holder prize of a $2000 voucher from Luxury Lodges of Australia. Giving you the flexibility to use however and wherever suits you, you’ll experience a new level of relaxation as you take your pick from some of Australia’s most stunning – and sustainable – holiday homes. From Freycinet to Kakadu and everywhere in between, get ready to get away with the Sustainability Summit.

PLUS – all physical attendees will also go in the running to win one of six sustainable door prizes, meaning an in-person ticket unlocks a bigger chance to win. Pack your bags for an overnight stay at the Shangri-La, plan a wine tasting evening with Hidden Sea wines, begin your plastic-free journey at home with Seed and Sprout or up your summer game with prizes from Good Citizens eyewear, Business & Pleasure Co. and House of Marley.

  1. Get physical

If we’ve learnt one thing over the last two years, it’s how important networking and connections are – particularly in areas where you’re trying to make change. From making a new business relationship, stimulating new ideas or uncovering new solutions, being together in a central space makes everything a little bit easier. After so long apart, the 2022 Sustainability Summit is a chance to bring everyone back together, reconnecting friends and colleagues in the common pursuit of improving Australia’s built environment.

PLUS – you’ll have the chance to sample new products and systems thanks to the Sustainability Summit partners who will be on the ground all day. Specify sustainably for your new projects and find out the latest news from suppliers who are leading the charge on circular economy, waste and decarbonisation.

  1. Line-up
