Each year the UDIA Qld Annual Developers Conference brings together the Queensland property development industry to share expertise, expand frameworks of knowledge and to enhance industry relationships.
A focus on key issues, innovative ideas and new thinking combine to make this one of the industry’s premier knowledge building and networking events.
In 2017, the UDIA Qld Annual Developers Conference theme is
The way we live: the changing face of housing
The urbanisation challenge is top of our list in 2017. Community expectations are rising, space is getting tighter, Generation Rent is giving up hope, and the time has come for some fresh thinking about what urbanisation means in Queensland now and in the future.
Are you ready to rethink the way we live?
You’ll come away with the insights, knowledge, and inspiration you need to rise to the challenge of creating the communities we are proud of and the homes our customers love.
Join us as we take a deep dive into the challenges of urban living in 2017:
- How do we flick the switch and get inside the homebuyer’s head?
- What will it take to turn Generation Rent into Generation Sold?
- New ways of delivering density: are you up to the challenge?
- You’ve heard of CoWorking but are you ready for CoLiving?
Here are just some of the speakers making up our impressive line up.
