Australasian Architecture Network & Xpand Meetups

9th Apr 2015


Australasian Architecture Network & Xpand are pleased to announce our next meetups.

For the next Sydney and Melbourne meetups Xpand’s very own Andrew Blades and Shannon Anderson are hosting what promises to be both a fascinating and informative evening centred on the core topic of 'Predicting The Future Of Cloud'.

The events will be held:

For Sydney                               Thursday  23/04/2015

For Melbourne                          Thursday  30/04/2015

The sessions will be largely interactive, with a panel of exceptional key speakers from within the industry and will be followed by plenty of networking time, with all food provided by Xpand (Don’t worry, it’s not all work!).

This group will be invaluable for architects, either from a technical or business point of view and will be a great opportunity to network, interact, share knowledge and gain further insight into this constantly changing industry. If you’re one of the fine specimen that fits those aforementioned categories, please do come along, we would love to have you in attendance!

Unlike the other event we have running that night; ‘Predicting the Future of Clouds’ there will be no famous weather reporters hosting. Instead the panel for Sydney and Melbourne confirmed we have expert representatives from.
