The 2020 South Pacific Passive House Conference is slated for May 28–31 in Sydney next year.
Co-hosted by the Australian Passive House Association (APHA) and the Passive House Institute of New Zealand (PHINZ), the event will take place at the Roundhouse at the University of New South Wales’ (UNSW) campus in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
“We are excited to be holding this event for the first time in Sydney, and are already fielding strong interest from a stellar line-up of speakers,” says APHA CEO Paul Wall.
“We have seen a growth of 30 per cent in membership in the past 12 months and have also doubled the number of certified professionals serving the growing demand for Passive House in Australia, which are great indicators for a bumper event in 2020.”
The conference will include talks, site tours, hands-on masterclasses, networking events for professionals, as well as a trade show open to the general public.
“Experts from around the world will present on the enormous potential of good design, while at the same time product and component suppliers and manufacturers will demonstrate their practical implementation in our Trade Exhibit,” Wall says. “The conference will seek to demonstrate the importance of well-conceived and consistent action in the building sector for a successful transition to healthier buildings and a sustainable energy future.”
