Full frontal tile and stone expo gives architects the opportunity for professional development.
June 1st, 2009
The Full Frontal Tile and Stone Expo (20 – 22 August 2009) is a must-attend event for architects in 2009, providing a full raft of seminars and formal training sessions tailored to offer the most up to date and relevant information on hard surface materials for the Australian industry.
Not only do architects receive a 10% discount to the formal training sessions on offer, they are also eligible to receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points from the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) if they attend the Expo’s seminars and formal training sessions.
Architects attending the formal training sessions will receive one formal CPD point per hour, with topics on offer including Disability Access Standards, slip resistant surfaces and new façade tiling concepts.
The Expo’s industry seminars will provide one informal CPD point each and will showcase over 20 speakers from Australia and overseas, covering topics including sustainability, Australian standards and tile and stone maintenance. Click here to view the full program.
Architects attending can view a variety of special exhibits covering the fire resistant qualities of ceramic tile, which is a non-combustible product that does not spread or feed a fire (University of Bologna).
Other exhibits focus on the benefits of permeable paving systems, a practical pool tiling demonstration, a stone carving exhibit and a challenging tiling competition. Architects will receive information on all prime exhibits.
Pre-registration for trade visitors, including architects, is free for the Full Frontal Tile and Stone Expo and its industry seminars. Register online now at: fullfrontalexpo.com
