Bring on the Future of Construction Summit 2023

Since 2021, FuturePlace together with the Australian Constructors Association (ACA) have worked together closely to deliver the Future of Construction Summit.

This is a senior gathering of leaders representing some of the largest contractors, policy makers and infrastructure players in Australia, aiming to share a collective passion to create a more competitive, diverse, resilient and innovative industry.

Taking place in two weeks at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne from 3 – 4 of May, this year’s event is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever with over 600 attendees confirmed. Appropriately themed ‘FCON disrupted’, the focus of the 2023 Summit is on industry disruption and how to navigate this successfully through brave leadership, policy reform, new approaches and emerging technologies.
