About this event

This is the one time of the year that councils, BCAs, IQP’s, WOF agents and facility managers come together to learn from each other, chew over the hard stuff.

You are invited to be part of the latest conversations.

This forum is for:

Staff working in Compliance, Companies, IQP firms, and IQPs, Council staff working in BWOF Compliance, Compliance Schedule writing, Managers of IQP registers, Facility Managers, Asset Managers, Building owners and owners agents.

There will be plenty of time to go over your own questions and answers as a group, so that you leave feeling more empowered to know what to do and where to go for the information.


Make new connections and do business with each other.

Includes all refreshments and a networking lunch.

We know you don’t often stop for lunch in your working week, in this session you will not only stop for lunch but also have the bonus of networking.
