CIB is pleased to announce that the World Building Congress 27-30 June 2022 will proceed with a hybrid format with both in-person and online attendance.  The CIB Board met on March 14th-16th and reviewed the latest developments with the global pandemic including travel restrictions, which have eased significantly in Australia in recent weeks. It also had the results of a second survey of potential attendees’ attitudes, which were strongly in favour of the hybrid option.

“We are most grateful to Ron Wakefield and his team at RMIT for their commitment and support in hosting WBC2022 on behalf of Australia’s Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre (SBEnrc). We fervently hope that our members and other industry practitioners, government policy makers and clients and researchers around the world will be able to gather in person in Melbourne in June, as there is no doubting the added value that this will bring for attendees”.

We exhort all CIB members and authors of accepted papers to spread the word that WBC2022 is on, it will be a great event and for many it will be a reminder of how valuable a face-to-face conference is compared with online”.
