Advancing stronger collaboration and partnerships amongst government, industry, and housing communities to expand the development of affordable housing.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Due to the evolving COVID-19 health risk and travel restrictions, the Affordable Housing Development & Investment Summit in Melbourne will now be a fully virtual event. The health and safety concerns of our attendees, speakers and staff is our number one priority, and we strongly believe this is the right decision given the evolving public health risks, travel concerns and other circumstances. 
If you are a registered delegate, a member of our customer service team will follow up with you directly to discuss the changes.

 
Australia is experiencing serious housing affordability issues! With the need for 650,000 affordable or social housing homes to be built within the spread of our cities, suburbs, and regional areas over the next 15 years, it is now more important than ever to unite the sector to shape the future of Australia’s housing crisis. 
 
The 7th Annual Affordable Housing Development & Investment Summit will bring together key bodies and industry stakeholders within the housing sector to discuss applicable measures of collaborations and partnerships, investment strategies, and sustainable housing delivery models as evidence-based solutions to strategize scalable affordable housing solutions.  
 
Join us from the 13th to the 14th of September in Melbourne, as we bring together senior leaders from governments, property developers, community housing providers, investors, and other industry leaders.   
 
This summit will help uncover challenges organisations across the industry are facing in the pursuit of achieving scalable solutions to make affordable housing a reality.
