20th ICTC Conference
Join us in Parramatta, Sydney as we celebrate 20 years of the International Cities, Town Centres & Communities (ICTC) Conference from 14 – 16 October 2020. The 20th Anniversary Conference is our chance to reflect on where we have come from and the future direction of our cities, town centres and communities.
With a diverse cross-section of industries all working towards a common goal to create great places to live, work and play, let’s all come together to collaborate, share ideas and implement best practice at ICTC 2020 in Parramatta, a city leading the way as it undergoes major change.
ICTC is your opportunity to share lessons learnt, celebrate the wins and inspire change for better. The conference welcomes city leaders and urban place professionals who lead and plan cities and town centres right through to those who implement and manage them on the ground.
Experience a jam-packed program both during conference sessions and through the streets as the city rolls out the public activation red carpet during Parramatta’s Lanes Festival.
Program sessions will delve into our latest challenges faced, offer open discussion, showcase best practices whilst learning from your peers and our global industry speakers. Be exposed to the challenges and opportunities of making great cities and places in an interactive format, and see first-hand on the many walking tours, the trials and tribulations they’ve faced as they make their way through the city’s ‘open heart surgery’.
