The biennial National Housing Conference is convened by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) and is the single largest cross-sectoral event in Australasia for the social and affordable housing sectors. It aims to provide a platform for sharing, debating, celebrating and promoting ideas in affordable housing research, policy and practice and is a must attend event for anyone interested in innovative solutions and partnerships to guide Australia's future approach to affordable housing delivery. This includes policy-makers, housing and allied service providers, tenants, those working in the private sector, researchers, planners and staff from not-for-profit housing and homelessness organisations.
There have been eight previous National Housing Conferences held in 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013. The next will be convened in Perth by AHURI in partnership with the WA Department of Housing from Wednesday 28 October to Friday 30 October 2015.
