Overcoming challenges in Australia’s housing affordability crisis and stimulating the pandemic economic recovery through affordable housing development

The 6th Annual Affordable Housing Development & Investment Summit   


Summit: 1-2 December 2020       

The coronavirus crisis has presented a unique opportunity to fix Australia’s housing affordability crisis. By harnessing the collective power of government, community housing providers, property developers and investors, there is enormous potential for large-scale investment and development of social and affordable housing in Australia.  
The 6th Annual Affordable Housing Development & Investment Summit will bring these industry stakeholders together to collaborate, strategize and innovate in order to accelerate the development of social and affordable housing while stimulating the pandemic economic recovery.  
This critical summit is positioned in December to build on unprecedented momentum for affordable housing, and will set the stage for future policy changes, investment strategies, and delivery models to shape the immediate future of Australia’s housing. This is the perfect platform for you to learn from Australia’s largest housing providers/developers and become part of the solution to make affordable housing a reality.
