The UDIA National Congress is the flagship annual event for the development industry in Australia.

Attracting up to 1000 delegates each year, the event will celebrate its 25th anniversary in Perth from 4 – 6 April 2017.

Congress will feature international, national as well as local speakers who are experts in a range of development related fields.  Plenary sessions along with more intimate breakout sessions will provide a good mix of learning opportunities for delegates with a chance to ask questions and get involved in topics related to the latest development trends and innovations.

This year’s theme is all about who is on the cutting edge and what the development industry should be considering now, to be relevant and ready for the future.

Congress is a great place to find out about the latest products, innovations and new technology via the Exhibition Hall, where you will also be able to meet with other delegates and industry professionals.

Finally, Congress also offers a fantastic social itinerary including networking drinks and gourmet meals in some of Perth’s most iconic locations.

Congress culminates with the National Awards Gala Dinner, which is the biggest night on the development industry’s calendar and a chance to showcase the very best projects that Australia has to offer.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn and network with the very best in the industry and take some time to discover what Perth has to offer.
