NSW Executive Director Katie Stevenson interviewed about our new industrial assets report from Oxford Economics Australia

A warm welcome to the incredible 102 new members who’ve joined us since January. Strength in numbers indeed.

1.2 trillion reasons to prioritise sheds

Spotlight on industrial. Often overlooked, it was pleasing to work with Channel 9 on Monday to highlight the incredible importance of this city-shaping asset.

Our fresh Oxford Economics Australia report revealed $1.2 trillion in goods flowed through industrial assets last year.

We are redoubling our efforts to put industrial lands on state government priority lists across our capitals.

AI genie out of the bottle

Sure ChatGPT and other future AI overlords could write a better editorial.

That’s why over the past four years, Yardi and the Property Council of Australia have partnered to understand pioneering property technology trends, unveiling opportunities across the industry.

Our recent survey indicates that while AI adoption in the property sector is on the rise, not everyone is busy shifting gears. As you would expect, we aim to elevate AI adoption across property over the next few years.

Cross country engagement

Is there such a thing as too little vacancy? Great to answer that question with our Tassie Executive Director Rebecca Ellston and a brilliant panel in Hobart last week for our final national OMR.

Good solid engagement this week too at important events in Brisbane, Melbourne, Wollongong and Sydney ahead of the legendary Vision for the State lunch in Perth next week.

Pay gap reporting

Ahead of next week’s release of gender pay gaps by Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) our partners at the Champions of Change coalition have provided this helpful resource to support the sector better understand the data and new requirements. Much to improve here.

More next week and a deep dive into our pre Budget submission.
