Significant developments are changing the face of Perth and so too how people perceive our city.


Burswood Precinct’s new Perth stadium, the Metronet, Scarborough Redevelopment and the new Perth Museum in the cultural centre will have impacts on how people commute and utilise services and venues.  It will be critical for valuers, legal and finance professionals to be informed of these changes.  


This event will give you an expert overview of the reshaping of these precincts and implementation of proposed infrastructure.
