GLOBAL IDEAS WITH A GLOBAL REACH

 

Immediately improve your business future

COLAB20 is mass knowledge sharing

on a massive scale at its finest and

without the crowds

The offsite manufacturing construction sector is prime for striking out now to gather momentum for upcoming and exciting developments.

PrefabNZ COLAB20 Innovation In Action virtual conference will showcase the latest trends and innovations within the residential, commercial and infrastructure offsite sector in New Zealand and internationally.

As well as hearing from exciting international keynote speakers, the conference will also provide an overview of the economic, regulatory, skills and sustainability landscape shaping the sector.

Taking huge advantage of the virtual platform, COLAB20 is geared up to deliver on aspects no physical conference can.

You wanted more time to digest material, you wanted more value, you wanted increased interactivity, you wanted more opportunity to hear debates, discussions, and the chance to deliver your questions to those at the forefront of sector-specific expertise. COLAB20 will deliver like never before.

Ten days before the LIVE conference day, all registrants will receive full access to our exclusive on-demand library, filled with presentation pre-recordings from each of our handpicked experts, downloadables, and related material. This gives you the chance to digest, get involved in discussion boards, get networking, and prepare questions you'll pose to those experts on the LIVE conference day.

 

LIVE conference day is set for 11 June, with a line-up of smart high-impact and live deep-dive interviews with Q&A sessions, and dynamic discussion panels with outstanding experts set to deliver powerful business-transforming innovation. Roundtable sessions are available for small groups - you can have in-depth discussions with our experts.

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.
