2024 Brisbane

Updated 2024 FMA National Conference Logo


The Conference was held at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 21 – 24 May 2024.

The FMA Conference has been held annually for over 60 years and is the most respected flood risk management event held in Australia.

The theme of the Conference is Floods in a Changing Climate, which focused on keeping flood risk management a high priority when seasonal forecasts are for below average rainfall, and flooding patterns change as the climate warms. 

The Conference was for anyone interested in making our communities more flood safe. It brought together over 350 flood professionals and community members with interests in flood risk management. Attendees included Commonwealth, State and Local Government representatives, research organisations and education providers as well as consultants, engineers, land-use planners, emergency responders and community volunteer organisations.

The Conference program included outstanding Australian and International speakers, plenary and concurrent presentations, a Local Government Councillors’ session, field trips addressing floodplain issues in Brisbane and surrounding areas, as well as great networking events. Optional Conference workshops on topical issues were held on the Tuesday.
