UDIA National Congress 2018 Principal Partner

nbn is proud to be the Principal Partner of the 2018 UDIA National Congress.

With a theme like “See the Now” we couldn’t think of a better partnership – recognising the important role the property sector plays in making the most of the technological innovations that underpin our cities.

Australia is at a tipping point, with national high-speed connectivity opening up an array of possibilities for economic prosperity and social benefit. We are in the midst of witnessing technological advances at extreme pace, and it is having a profound impact on how we live and how we plan and build cities.

The rollout of the nbn™ network has passed the halfway mark and one in two Australians can now order an nbn™ service through a retail service provider.  Although nbn provides the foundation on which we can build and innovate, how we use it will matter. We look forward to exploring with you how today’s innovation shapes the cities of tomorrow.
