2018 Gold Coast



The 2018 FMA National Conference will be held at Gold Coast, Queensland from 29 May to 1 June 2018 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.


City of Gold Coast Council has been a regular participant in FMA Conferences for many years, and has very significant flood challenges.


Delegates would recall that City of Gold Coast won the 2014 FMA-NRMA Insurance Flood Risk Management Project of the Year Award for its Hinze Dam Stage III Post Mitigation Flood Policy.


This Award was accepted by Dr Hamid Mirfenderesk, Coordinator Natural Hazards, who was also awarded the Harold Sternbeck Medal for the best paper and presentation at the 2014 Conference, titled Flood Mitigation Works and Planning Levels, a Policy Rethink; Gold Coast Experience.


The Conference will include informative field trips, exciting networking opportunities and social functions, and outstanding speakers and presentations in the famous Gold Coast setting.


Building on the experiences of our 2013, 2015 and 2017 National Conferences, the expertise of our Professional Conference Organisers East Coast Conferences,  and the local knowledge and enthusiasm of Council representatives, delegates are assumed of another outstanding National Conference in 2018.


Make sure you reserve the Conference in your 2018 calendar and budget now!
