Brisbane 2033: Legacy Project

2020 Inner City Vitality Report Event

Now in its third year, this much anticipated Report and event looks at Brisbane’s Inner-City Vitality – across five key indicators. This Report is unique in its coverage of the sectors that drive the future of inner Brisbane’s economic engine room. The panellists, experts in their area of economic contribution, will discuss the 2020 Report results and debate the future trend for Brisbane’s recovery and period of massive change in a post-COVID19 city.

The five key indicators:
– Commercial & residential real estate health
– Hotel stays/tourism health
– Retail health
– Education health
– Transit/Mobility health

It will be a stimulating and provocative panel discussion.
