What future for CBDs?

Date - 16 November 2023
Venue - Bartier Perry

Bartier Perry is proud to sponsor this Australian Institute of Urban Studies (AIUS) event. 

The Covid pandemic made ghost towns of Australia’s major city centres. To which was added the sudden success of virtual meetings empowering the decades long struggle to free work from commuting. But the jury is still out on questions of productivity, collaboration, office space forecasts and the future of our CBDs. Join David Harding for an update on what lies ahead for our city centres.

Guest presenter: David Harding, Executive Director Business NSW

Business NSW is focused on the well-being and sustainable growth of our business community. Its purpose is to provide a strong, clear leadership voice for businesses on important economic and financial issues. Working closely with members and government, it identifies key challenges and develops practical policy solutions to ensure that businesses across NSW prosper and grow.

David is an NSW Advisory Councillor to SmartNSW and also the 24 Hour Economy, represents customer’s interests at the Australian Energy Regulator and to AGL, and sits on a wide range of other trade and industry groups as well as government taskforces. He served as Co-Chair of the Commission into the Future of the City of Sydney and has recently launched “Revaluing our CBDs”, a report on significant changes required to maintain commercial property values and CBD growth.
