Restoration industry to reunite at RIA Australasian Conference

Why the 2022 RIA Australasian Conference and Tradeshow is not to be missed.

After two years where we have all not been able to travel and network with our industry peers and suppliers, we are excited to be hosting the 2022 RIA Australasian Conference and Tradeshow at the recently renovated Novotel Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast.

Following a tumultuous start to 2022, with natural disasters presenting challenges to all restoration providers up and down the east coast, our 2022 conference will present everyone with a chance to learn, network, and share stories of our recent challenges and experiences with peers from across the country.

The conference will begin with our inaugural Indoor Air Quality Day on Wednesday, 25 May. Held in conjunction with the Indoor Air Quality Association of Australia (IAQAA), the event features a fantastic line-up of speakers that will discuss microbial and indoor air quality issues.

The 2022 RIA Australasian Restoration Conference and Tradeshow will be held on Thursday, 26 May and Friday, 27 May.

The event will offer attendees a wide-ranging educational program featuring experts on all things restoration – from fire to some interesting jobs during the recent flooding events around the country.

The trade show exhibition will be opening each afternoon following the day’s education sessions, with our industry suppliers to showcase the latest in learning, technology, and equipment.  The 2022 RIA Australasian Restoration Conference and Tradeshow will conclude with the our gala dinner.

Prior to the conference, RIA is also hosting the RIA Project Management Course on Monday, 23 May and Tuesday, 24 May Novotel Twin Waters, enabling attendees to not only participate in the training, but also the education and networking the conference allows.

The RIA Project Management course is designed to teach the restoration, indoor air or cleaning professional skills to enable them to better manage their restoration projects, while also increasing their professionalism and bottom line.

This course also forms part of the perquisite make up for entry into the RIA’s advanced designations such as the Water Loss Specialist (WLS), Fire loss Specialist (FLS), Contents Loss Specialist (CLS) ,and the soon to be released Environmental Risk Specialist (ERS).

These four pillars of the restoration body of knowledge then allow participants to work towards the highest industry designation of the Certified Restorer (CR).

Working through the advanced RIA and IICRC courses gives registrants not only a fantastic amount of learning and knowledge but also a career pathway to becoming recognised as true professionals in the industry.

The RIA Australasian Restoration Conference and Tradeshow gives attendees the chance to meet and network with many senior figures of the Australian Restoration Industry.

It is also an opportunity to grow both your industry contacts and support network that can assist you growing your business.

Combined with a restoration focused trade show, the RIA Australasian Restoration Conference and Tradeshow is not to be missed.

Owen Boak CR is chairperson of RIA Australasia
