Event description

Description

Tomorrowland is back! Hear from the experts and contribute to the debate.

EARLY BIRD TICKETS $325 ON SALE UNTIL 17 AUG

This year we’re ramping up the agenda. This year's theme is the Urban Story and Three Big Questions:

1. Environment – We’re part of nature; so how do we build the buildings and cities that are good for us?

2. Finance – How do we efficiently allocate and price resources to pay for what we want?

3. Social/policy – The social contract is wearing thin. How do we create – and prove – there is shared value in our strategies and plans?

As with all TFE events, expect a spirited and interactive debate from the experts driving change and innovative thinking in the built environment. From biomimicry in urban design to the circular economy, indigenous design and the big technology disruptions coming our way faster than we think.

Buildings no longer stand alone. We are in an era of integrated precincts, networked cities and people wanting better connectivity where they live, work and play.

From autonomous vehicles to AI and the growing populations that we will need to house, how will infrastructure keep up? It’s the disconnect between need and delivery that’s often blamed for the social contract wearing thin, but getting and keeping the public on side is critical for cities that work for our economies and our society.

What are the creative ways that developers and financiers are working on to deliver the future we want and need? Let’s identify the barriers and agree to remove them.

Last year’s Investor Panel and The Inquisition were a huge success. So this year, they're back, bigger and better. You won't want to miss what we've got in store for you.

And, of course, the audience is always part of the action with TFE so we’ll be opening up the floor for your contributions.
