Event overview


Cities connect people, knowledge, businesses and markets, and how effectively they do so has important implications for our economic performance. They produce the bulk of Australia’s economic output while standing as vital gateways for contributions from regional Australia.

How best will population growth, effective planning, a shifting climate and delivery of major infrastructure projects on time and on budget, be managed? Are we prepared for the shared economy disruption of organisational structures, workforces and the transfer of ideas, goods and skills?

Join senior colleagues from across sectors to hear from leading thinkers on how and where people will work, move and live and to discuss the sustainable development and efficient operation of our cities.
