QLD Conversations and CPD in Cairns

QLD Conversations and CPD in Cairns

As part of the Queensland Government Regional and Small Business month, AILA will be hosting a free breakfast event for AILA Members and allied professions in Cairns. 

This event will promote cross industry collaboration for better green and blue infrastructure outcomes. Focusing on how local government, industry and small business can work together to improve local supply and demand.

It will include a presentation from Cairns City Architect, Ellen Buttrose and the Cairns Regional Council design team around urban regeneration. 

Followed by a multi-disciplinary panel discussion around how can we advocate for better outcomes for urban greening and promote cross industry collaboration; and how can local business and council work together to create more opportunities. 

Finishing with technical presentations relevant for landscape architects and allied professions on managing your risk in business and specifying key project elements using case study examples with AILA supplier partners.

We will be joined by AILA Partners:
Planned Cover - provides a full circle of support, offering advice, insurance and representation for profession-specific protection in the built environment industry.
PlayCo - is a collective of leading Australian playground suppliers who work together to create the magic of play. With their local distributor, they will be showcasing innovative playground design through a case study exemplar.
Urban Turf Solutions - Showcasing innovation when it comes to the research, development and manufacture of locally made, high quality, synthetic grass surfaces for specific project solutions. 

This will be a free event and will include breakfast and networking.
