Australia | Leadership Summit on Applied Innovation and Technology – First Movers

| Sydney

This July, the Design Futures Council will convene leaders in disruption who are innovating to change the world: from those who develop and finance leading technologies, to those who are creating new business models that could challenge the fundamentals and long-held assumptions in the practice and business of A/E/C. The event promises to not only help you better understand the changes that are coming, but also to prepare your organization to thrive in a dynamic new environment.

The 2019 Summit theme is First Movers. In this summit we will explore the culture, technology and strategy behind the emerging first movers within the rapidly adapting the built environment. The content of this event is designed for leaders with National, State wide or Global roles within the built environment.

Design Futures Council has organised a selection of local PropTech start ups to showcase at the networking function the night before the Leadership Summit.


First Movers will be held on July 2-3, 2019 in Sydney at Royal Automobile Club of Australia. For more information and to register, go here.
