The Property Council’s Think Tank series is one of Victoria’s leading industry events. Start your year with the most up-to-date information and gain insight into the most critical issues facing the industry. The Think Tank Series also offer members valuable networking opportunities. 

Our Retirement Think Tank will outline barriers and enablers to growing this critical sector. Hear from key leaders from the industry and government on the key issues that will shape the sector for the year ahead.  

Industry Outlook
Statistics say that our population is getting older but what does this mean for retirement villages? Join us to find out where the sector is heading, according to one of Victoria’s demographic experts.  

Keynote Speaker: Brian Haratsis, Executive Chairman, MacroPlan Dimasi

Session 1 | Planning barriers – What are the soft spots?

Planning has been identified as one of the key barriers to increasing the supply of villages in Victoria. This session will discuss the status quo, including real life experiences and how the system could be improved to facilitate development. 

Breton Fleming, Director, Urbis

Genell Dunn, Group Marketing Manager, Arcadia

James Aldred, Regional Development Manager (VIC, SA, WA), Retirement Living, Lendlease

Session 2 | Parliamentary Retirement Inquiry
The Parliamentary Inquiry into Retirement Housing has the potential to permanently change the sector in Victoria. Hear what the Committee has recommended to Parliament, followed by a discussion from industry experts about what impact this could have on the sector.
