How Are Developers Responding to Australia’s Ageing Population?


The Urban Developer’s Developing for an Ageing Australia summit brings together leaders in the sector for an intensive day showcasing the latest research, expert perspective, case studies and networking.

This exclusive event will explore the fundamental supply and demand dynamics of the aged care, retirement and senior lifestyle sub-markets nationally and locally within each of our three host cities—Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

By drawing upon the most trusted researchers within the sector, the summit will assess the current state of the market and forecasts for the future with a focus on demographics, population growth and new supply.

Several leading developers will join an interactive panel that will unpack the opportunities and challenges for the property development industry within each of the particular sub-markets.

In the shadows of a Royal Commission into Aged Care, an expert panel of legal experts, operators and consumer advocates will also explore the consumer’s perspective and digest what impact this will have on the development industry.

A moderated panel of specialist architects and designers will reveal the latest design solutions that are providing dignified outcomes for the aged care and retirement sector.

Through four case study presentations we will learn about new development models, important design considerations, the impact of sustainability and more.

And finally, the summit will deliver a showcase of the latest innovations and technologies that are disrupting the sector and providing new solutions to old problems.

The event will conclude with an exclusive networking event.

This is a unique opportunity for a select group of developers, operators, professionals and suppliers to come together and develop a deeper understanding of the major forces shaping the sector in future.
