Call for Abstracts

The Conference Organising Committee are seeking presentation abstracts for the 2024 ALDE Conference 'Connecting the Pieces: Crafting the Future of Land Development' which will be held at the Mantra Lorne on Tuesday, 20 and Wednesday, 21 August 2024.

The theme highlights the intricate nature of land development projects and the various components that need to come together seamlessly for successful outcomes. Just like assembling a puzzle, the land development team must skilfully connect different aspects such as infrastructure, environmental sustainability, urban planning, and regulatory compliance. This conference is set to explore the challenges and innovative solutions that we all employ to create liveable communities.

Abstracts are being sought in the following Conference streams:

- Effective Site Management
- Smart Software Use
- Collaboration with Land Development
