BOOMTOWN! INFRASTRUCTURE DINNER - Thursday, 28 November
BOOMTOWN! POLICY CONFERENCE - Friday, 29 November
Sofitel Sydney Wentworth
Greater Western Sydney's flagship property & infrastructure event returns on the 28 & 29 November 2019 at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, where the ‘West comes to town’ to talk with financiers, developers, regulators and operators about the growth opportunities in the nation's most dynamic region.
The BOOMTOWN! Infrastructure Dinner, on Thursday, 28 November will be the perfect introduction to the conference, with the NSW Premier tackling the big issues in property, transport and planning, during her on-stage interview with Dialogue Chairman Christopher Brown AM. The dinner will once again include Patrons' Prizes for Excellence, as well as the Dialogue’s Project of the Year Awards. The dinner will also include a showcase of some of the significant infrastructure projects that have been delivered over the past 12 months and also provide an opportunity for guests to hear directly from the CEOs and Project Directors who have helped put the ‘boom’ in Western Sydney’s Boomtown!
The following day is the BOOMTOWN! Policy Conference on Friday, 29 November. The program aims to explore these big ideas:
Which precincts are set to thrive in Western Sydney due to the emerging metro network?
What would a national Fast Rail network look like, and what would it deliver for businesses and communities in Greater Western Sydney?
What are the factors that will influence Greater Western Sydney's economic development on our path to 200,000 new jobs?
What lessons can we learn from East London to unlock the potential of the Greater West?
What are the future transport links that Greater Western Sydney needs to support population and economic growth?
How can we manage Greater Western Sydney's growing pains and how do we build a sustainable development & property sector?
How is the Western Sydney Aerotropolis shaping the Western City?
