Boomtown! Gala Dinner and Summit 2019

This year’s event will promote the projects that will help to build, connect and grow the cities of Greater Western Sydney.

Deliberately held in the Eastern City, the traditional heart of decision-makers and corporate HQs, “the West comes to town” to talk all things development, property, planning, governance, finance and infrastructure.

BOOMTOWN! provides a platform for government and connected agencies to outline their policy agenda to achieve this development, and facilitates a dialogue between the public and private sectors on how to deliver positive outcomes for business and the community.

This year the BOOMTOWN! Summit will focus on:

  • Delivered projects: A major projects showcase
  • The future of transport in Greater Western Sydney (GWS)
  • Faster rail opportunities
  • On-going development of the Central City
  • Metro rail and its impact on precinct development
  • Employment and investment drivers in GWS
  • Sustainable development and affordable housing models
  • The future development of the Aerotropolis and the Western Parkland City
