Virtual Conference

Thank you to all those who attended

COLAB20 is mass knowledge sharing

on a massive scale at its finest and

without the crowds

It was a terrific day on LIVE conference day, and we'd love to send our thanks to all those who participated - our hosts, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, the PrefabNZ team and our important PrefabNZ Members and delegates who attended. This conference was a new journey for the PrefabNZ team, and they came through with a winning formula. They hope you enjoyed yourself.

We acknowledge the learnings that came out of the conference and look forward to the future of such events with the experience now gained to deliver it bigger and brighter. 

The On-Demand Library is available to all paid delegates until 30 July. NZIA CPD points will be processed on the 1st August. CPD points through other associations will need to be contacted directly by the delegate for processing.

 

The PrefabNZ team have updated the On-Demand library with the podcast series of the conference day interviews/Q&A's, panel discussions and roundtable sessions. These are freely available to paid delegates. For those who didn't pay to attend COLAB20 live, we have a post-conference package available for purchase ($99 +GST) which will give you access to these resources. 

A survey will be sent out to delegates soon, and we would love and appreciate your feedback.

Friday 12 June - Day Two

10:30am-1:00pm

Workshop with James Murray-Parkes

HOW TO INNOVATE LIKE A SCIENTIST

James devotes a large portion of time searching the natural world for inspiration to help solve problems and learn how to find them. For instance, the story of him using the profile of owl wings to radically reduce wind shear from building facades. This means far less concrete to create ballast and stops them swaying so much in the wind.

It's people like James who change the world. A brilliant mind and the extreme self-confidence to do what no-one's done before. He's the brains behind a string of innovations in building design and technology that for most mortals is head-spinningly new or downright incomprehensible. To James, our physical world provides an endless resource for isual study and exploration to develop a unique and yet organic approach.

All COLAB20 registrants receive FREE access to James Murray-Parkes' workshop.​

Note: We may make minor adjustments to the schedule as things progress.
