Directions and further details:
Please arrive at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start.
The Interface head office and showroom is located within the heritage-listed 101 Chalmers Street building in Sydney. Access from Central Station involves turning right as you leave the Devonshire St exit, and then a short walk with a second, almost immediate right - if you get to to Prince Alfred Park you have gone too far!
Look for a two-storey red brick and sandstone building that adjoins a single-storey library, known as the ‘Railway Institute Building’. Entrance is at the rear of this building that has been faithfully restored and redesigned with stunning interiors, turning it into a showcase of environmental sustainability. Due to our proximity to Central Station, we encourage attendees to catch public transport to this event as nearby parking is limited.
Tea, coffee and tasty snacks are available before and after the talk, with donations gratefully accepted.
The ATA is an independent organisation that does not endorse products and seeks to provide members with information so that they can make well-informed sustainable decisions.
Our event is just a taster for the not to be missed Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition held on 1 & 2 June at Australian Technology Park which has good access from Redfern Station. This event includes a full two day Energy Storage conference with international speakers, free energy storage and electric car exhibitions as well as free solar installer workshops. Registration is a must. As a special offer please quote code ATA2016 for a 10% discount for ATA members on conference tickets.
Thanks for your ongoing support of the ATA Sydney Central Branch.
