  • Be inspired by innovative approaches to tackling the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in urban development.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of major changes in the way people will move around in cities, which presses into the
    NSW Premier's priority for transit-oriented development.
  • Reimagine the way you see and plan urban landscapes and dynamic precincts. 
  • Gain invaluable insights from local industry leaders showcasing the transformational work being done in our own backyard.
  • Share with your team best practice ideas that empower them to make a difference.
