Everybody’s Home – The 2018 Affordable Housing Conference
June 27, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The 2018 conference theme – Everybody’s Home – highlights the current and growing shortfall of accessible and affordable housing in Australia across the entire housing continuum.
Over two days, housing professionals from the private, not for profit, and government sectors will come together to share expertise and find out about the latest news in the industry.
Community Housing Industry Associations NSW and Homelessness NSW are jointly convening the NSW 2018 Affordable Housing Conference – Everybody’s Home from 27 – 28 June 2018 at the Sydney Masonic Centre, 66 Goulburn St, Sydney NSW 2000.
With housing affordability rising up the political agenda and elections on the way Everybody’s Home is expected to be our biggest conference ever, attracting not just the housing and homelessness sector but the industry’s financiers, property developers, government policy makers, land use planners, and academia. We have speakers lined up from Canada, the US and Europe to complement the locals on topics as diverse as tax credits, meeting Aboriginal housing needs, why investing in affordable housing makes economic sense and the case for growing the community housing sector.
