RIA has announced the date and location of the 2019 Australasian Restoration Industry Conference.
To be held at Twin Waters Novotel on the Sunshine Coast from 12 June – 14 June, the three-day event will include educational sessions, optional accredited training courses and networking events.
The conference sessions will focus on technical restoration content, with international educators and speakers from Asia, Canada, USA and Europe to present. The event will conclude with the RIA gala dinner, where the 2019 RIA Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented.
RIA’s Ross Riek said the goal of the 2019 Australasian Restoration Industry Conference is to further attendees’ technical knowledge.
“Our goal is to have attendees walk away furthering their technical knowledge on various aspects of restoration, enjoy a fantastic venue and the festivities the Sunshine Coast has to offer,” Riek said.
Globally, RIA represents more than 20,000 cleaning and restoration professionals from 1100 member firms specialising in textiles, environmental issues and restoration.
The association’s local arm was first established as a steering committee in 2015. In 2017 the RIA approved the formation of an Australasian council, giving its Australian and NZ counterparts a seat on the board of directors.
More information about the event will be released from December 2018.
