2022 Toowoomba



Join over 300 flood risk management professionals at the Empire Theatre Toowoomba from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 May, with a Pre-conference Workshop on Tuesday 17 May. 

The FMA Conference has been held annually for over 50 years and is the most respected flood risk management event held in Australia.

The Conference is for anyone interested in making our communities more flood safe. It will bring together over 350 flood professionals and community members with interests in floodplain risk management. Attendees will include 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 will include outstanding Australian and International speakers, plenary and concurrent presentations, a Local Government Councillors’ session, field trips addressing floodplain issues in Toowoomba and surrounding areas, as well as great networking events.
