Boomtown! Property & Infrastructure Summit 2022

The annual Boomtown! Dinner and Summit is the region’s premier development event promoting the transport, infrastructure and property projects that help to grow the cities of the West, as well as addressing urban transformation, cities policy and governance reform.

Boomtown provides a unique setting for public and private sector leaders to outline their policy agenda and investment plans to achieve this development – while also honouring the region’s best projects and policy practitioners.

The Summit is designed to facilitate a dialogue between key decision-makers and stakeholder groups and is delivered with the support of Transport for NSW and NSW Department of Planning & Environment.

Held at Olympic Park, Boomtown 2022 focused on an infrastructure-led recovery, and legacy, in a post-pandemic economy as we shift from planning and regulatory adjustments to project delivery and the provision of quality placemaking and city shaping infrastructure, programs and services.
