Do you know about the social, technological, and development changes that will transform the way we develop our cities? Attend the 25th anniversary of UDIA’s National Congress to hear the latest on these topics and more from international and Australian experts.



On behalf of the organising committee we are delighted to invite you to join us in Perth for the 25th anniversary of the UDIA National Congress.

The 2017 Congress presents delegates with a unique opportunity to learn from international and Australian leaders about the future of urban development and city building.

Before change there has to be disruption of the norm or business as usual approach. This National Congress has been designed to highlight these disruptions and will take hundreds of Congress delegates on a thought-provoking journey into how technology, transportation, urban infrastructure and social trends are going to shape the way cities develop in the future.

It will illuminate the importance of today’s thinking in realising the cities and towns of tomorrow and is a chance for participants to hear presentations from a range of experts from development related fields, about where the industry should be investing now, to ensure that we have the places we need in the future.

With the introduction of a new program structure this year, which includes a series of concurrent sessions, you have the ability to tailor your program and ensure you learn about the topics of most interest to you. There are also several exciting study tours and social functions available, providing many opportunities for you to network with colleagues in the industry.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 National Congress in Perth!


New speakers added! Detailed program & registration brochure now available.
