Residential Development Summit

Residential Development Summit postponed until August 2020

In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it is with much disappointment that we have made the decision to postpone the Residential Development Summit scheduled to take place in Auckland on Wednesday 25 March.

Although our numbers were below the 500 pax threshold recommended by the Government, we are committed to practicing “best host” and social responsibility and have therefore made the decision to postpone this event until 27 August 2020.  

The health and wellbeing of our members, sponsors, speakers and staff are paramount. This decision was made with their best interests in mind and we look forward to delivering this outstanding event in August and appreciate your support and understanding of the situation.

We are committed to providing our members with opportunities to be educated and informed and will work within restrictions to continue to provide this. Please be assured Property Council is following all Ministry of Health recommendations and guidelines and ensuring our events are compliant, with our members wellbeing remaining our first priority.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 021 0287 6603.

Ngā mihi nui.

The premier forum for the New Zealand residential development market returns to Auckland on Thursday 27 August 2020, with leaders from throughout the large-scale residential development sector brought together for one day of market analysis and networking.

This year we are breaking the mould, turning our focus to shaping cities where communities thrive with our new theme, City Shapers 2020: Creating Communities

The Summit will bring together detailed market updates and a look at what the political landscape and legislative environment means for the market. We will explore innovative case studies in urban design, while sharing insights into the future of cities and shining a light on the blurring of lines between traditional development and emerging ‘alternative’ residential sectors such as Build to Rent.

The Residential Development Summit | City Shapers 2020 provides a packed agenda that allows property developers, investors, owners and associated property professionals to be fully up to speed on all the key issues in the residential development market.
