Grahame Searle, Director General, Department of Housing and Ian Winter, Executive Director, Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute

Whatever your interest in the housing industry and whatever your preferred style of conference participation, NHC 2015 in Perth is a unique, ‘not to be missed’ forum for the housing industry. It is being held at a time of great uncertainty for the sector. Political upheaval and funding uncertainly, combined with substantial rises in the cost of land and housing and an increase in demand for front-line services, are just a few of the pressures facing the sector.

There is an imperative to come together to discuss and debate new approaches and new solutions to guide Australia’s future approach to affordable housing delivery. The conference also provides a timely opportunity to visit a state firmly focused on developing innovative solutions to improve the supply of affordable housing options for all Western Australians.

NHC 2015 opens the door for you to new possibilities… and provides you with the opportunity to form valuable connections that will last well in to the future.
