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.
President, CIB and
“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”.
Dean, RMIT University School of PCPM and
Chair, WBC2022 Local Organising Committee
“Over 400 full papers have been accepted for WBC2022 and sponsors have confirmed their support. We are delighted that CIB has confirmed it will go ahead with a hybrid format, Melbourne will be ready to offer a warm welcome and we look forward to seeing people face-to-face in June”.
"I am delighted that our Board has decided to go ahead with the face-to-face conference supported by an online option. 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”.
