The annual conversation between parliamentarians and industry leaders will take place in Canberra from 15-16 June. BEMP 2010 will focus on strategic planning for Australian cities now and for the future, with the results of a capital city strategic plans audit to be released. The audit will measure current major city strategic plans against the COAG’s future capital city strategic planning criteria.

The opening night will include the presentation of the Australia Award for Urban Design. Further information is available on the BEMP website including a list of confirmed speakers and key note presentations from the 2009 event.
