Placemaking is more than just creating better public spaces – it’s about drawing together expert practitioners and citizens to collectively shape and transform Australian regions and cities.

The movement is gaining momentum here in Australia but there’s still plenty to learn, with an abundance of emerging frameworks and design processes to untangle – and who better to learn from but the best in placemaking, planning and urban renewal?

Enter Expotrade's brand new event, the inaugural Australian Placemaking Summit.
