SITE VISIT PROGRAM

prefabAUS is finalising the last details for the upcoming Conference, and while we are focusing on bringing together a high calibre program, we regrettably have had to withdraw the Site Visit Program for this year.

Our Site Visit Program is the occasion to bring the prefabAUS community together and showcase some of the modern builds and materials in-situ through a guided tour by leading Industry brands. Due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to offer this opportunity.

This is the first time in six years we’ve had to withdraw the Site Visit Program, and the decision was not made lightly.

But don’t let that bring you down, we are committed to bringing you the best prefaubAUS conference to date!
