TRANSFORM is a unique opportunity to put your brand in front of the influencers and the decision-makers in the property and construction industry. Our partners receive prominent exposure and opportunities to contribute meaningfully to the conference and breakouts.

Sustainability insights

At TRANSFORM we are conscious of the environmental impact of an event and are actively taking steps to reduce our waste and emissions.


Responsible vendors

The Hilton have been named a Global Industry Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for 5 consecutive years, and have been featured on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for 2020 and 2021.



All food served at the in-person conference is vegetarian and made from local produce. The Hilton donate any leftover food to OzHarvest that deliver direct and free of charge to charities nationally.


Virtual options

To help reduce the carbon emitted by air travel, we offer a virtual ticket option so interstate and international speakers and attendees can join from their home location, without traveling to the event.


Recyclable event materials

Event badges are made from non-coated paper and lanyards are made from recyclable bamboo. Both are collected at the end of the event for reuse in 2024. Signage is recyclable and made from eco-friendly materials, with repurposed framing to reduce single-use products.


Reducing waste

We ask all our vendors and partners to help us reduce event waste by reducing hand-outs and using non-disposable products throughout the conference. TRANSFORM is also a no-paper conference.



We take all steps available to us to reduce our carbon footprint upfront, what can’t be reduced is offset by credible, authenticated offsets, courtesy of our Renewable Energy Partner
