The Bays Precinct Sydney International Summit was held in Sydney on 19-20 November, 2014. Preceding it on November 18 was a one-day workshop specifically focused on financing and funding.
The Bays Precinct Sydney International Summit is a unique undertaking which brought together a broad range of urban transformation practitioners, academics and policymakers, as well as community and not-for-profit representatives.
The Summit is all about thinking, hearing, discussing, and learning what is possible and how. This includes funding models and financing options, as well as forging relationships that will enable ongoing collaboration for both this and future urban transformation work.
