CONSTRUCTION RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMIT 2014

1 -2 April 2014 Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre - VIC

Expotrade Australia is pleased to announce the CONSTRUCTION RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMIT taking place on the 1st & 2nd April 2014 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

This timely Summit will bring together an expected 150 delegates from the construction, risk management and insurance industry. Allowing opportunities to learn, discuss, network, challenge and collaborate under one roof.

The CONSTRUCTION RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMIT comes at a time where construction risk is unavoidable and collaborative efforts are more important than ever. Hear how the use of technology will improve your risk management processes. All elements of risk will be discussed; contractual risk, project risk and financial risks. Covering project delivery delays, managing what happens on the construction site as well as OH&S issues. This Summit fosters a forum to discuss best practice case studies, emerging risks, early detection and project risk analysis.

Each stage of a construction project carries its own risks; even with strong risk management processes, solid plans and conscientious staff – risk can be unavoidable. Technology helps to ease some of the concerns along the way. Having everyone on the same page is critical; being aware of what each risk encompasses and how to manage that risk will reduce some of the associated risks.

This two day Summit allows a platform where leading construction companies, risk assessors, lawyers and insurance industry professionals will gather to network, learn and participate in deep discussions regarding new and developing issues surrounding risk within the construction industry.


 EVENT UPDATE: 
CONSTRUCTION RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMIT 2015 will take place on 20 - 21 April, 2015
