We’d like to say “thank you” to all recent participants for The Arbor Centre Conference: ‘Making Higher Density Development & Green Infrastructure Integration Happen’ who have been sending us lots of positive feedback via email and phone calls.
We’re delighted with the success of this event; around 150 attendees participated in a day of informative presentations, networking, interactions and discussions. It appears that we managed to hit the mark in terms of the topics and solutions that were covered during the course of the day.
A huge thanks once again to our outstanding guest presenters who travelled from all over Australia to join us.
Here are some initial highlights from the Conference:
- We emphasised innovation, the practicalities, and the evidence, rather than the ideas or theory.
- The Q&A session with our guest panellists showed commitment to ramp up collaboration between Planners, Water Management, Contractors, Arboriculture Consultants, Landscape Architects, Engineers!
- Dozens of attendees from Local Government participating and innovating from City of Canning, City of Stirling (Western Australia), City of Melville, City of Wanneroo, Town of Victoria Park, City of Belmont WA. Some even travelled from the Pilbara region to attend!
- Local Government representatives who attended would tell you that the appetite for improving processes, embracing change and getting stuck into more innovation, in terms how we manage this topic, is growing.
If you missed out, please get in touch. Our team would be happy to share learnings, outcomes and share connections with those experts who are already having a positive impact.
Be a part of the change
From the end of June, we’ll be making ‘Conference Summary Packs’ available to all attendees. In addition, the presentations from guest presenters will be available on the Arbor Centre YouTube channel. Details will be announced shortly.
