As this is a business event for those people working in the industry, we ask visitors not to bring anyone under the age of 15 to the show. The exception is infants under one year old that cannot be separated from their primary caregiver. If you bring an infant we strongly recommend that you carry them in a baby harness due to crowds (strictly no prams or shopping trolleys allowed at the show). This applies to the children of both visitors and exhibitors. Under no circumstances are any children permitted into the exhibition halls during Move In and Move Out of the show.

Students are welcome at Total Facilities, however they are required to pre-register online or have prior consent from the Total Facilities team. Only students studying a related course will qualify for entry.

What is the Be Summit?
While the main exhibitions show floors won’t return until 2022, we are excited to still be planning to deliver our newest event brand the Be Summit, in both Melbourne and Sydney in September and October respectively.
The Be Summit is a one-day conference, bringing together Australia’s built environment leaders, government policymakers, and market experts to build a roadmap of recovery, and pave the way for future construction and development within Australia’s built environments. The summits are designed as hybrid events with both in person and virtual attendee options to ensure that these event can run regardless of restrictions. Find out more about the Be Summits here.
What do I do if someone tries to sell me the Total Facilities databases and visitor lists?
This is a scam and you should ignore them. Total Facilities operates under strict data privacy laws, and we do not share our visitor or any other internal data with unauthorised third parties.
Any communication you may receive offering you to rent/buy or download our visitor or exhibitor contacts is a scam and should be deleted. We are currently exploring legal avenues to shut down these practices
