RMIT Industry Day

Property, Construction & Project Management Industry Day

‘Think beyond the immediate and spend time focusing on the dramatic changes that our society and industry are likely to see within a very short time period.’

RMIT’s School of Property, Construction and Project Management hosted an ‘Industry Day’ in Melbourne on January 16, which focused on the industry and its future.

The event, which is targeted at industry practitioners, was held concurrently with the Pacific Rim Real Estate Society’s (PRRES) 19th Annual Conference, which was hosted by RMIT from January 13 - 16.

This year’s Industry Day event, titled 2020 Vision: Lessons for the Built Environment, featured keynote speakers Michael McAllum, and The Hon. Tom Roper. Each provided a ‘Big Picture’ framework which will be expanded upon further by individual session specialist presenters.

  • Bruce Thompson, Chief Information Officer, Department of Sustainability and Environment, Victoria
  • Suzanne Findlay, Infrastructure Investments, Australian Super

The event is renowned for advancing understanding and cooperation between educators and the property industry in an increasingly complex industry.
