RPS and UDIA: Partners in Queensland Property

25 Feb 2021

RPS has elevated its decades-long relationship with the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), signing on as Principal Partner with the Queensland Chapter in 2021.

With a shared vision to grow a vibrant and successful property market, RPS and UDIA will work closely together to shape positive conversations about the issues that matter to the property industry in Queensland.

“RPS and UDIA have a relationship that spans decades. We celebrated 50 years in 2020 and the UDIA is doing so in 2021—our stories are very much intertwined, particularly here in Queensland,” said RPS Chief Executive for Australia Asia Pacific, Ross Thompson.

“The Sunshine State will continue to be a centre for population growth, and we need a built environment that accommodates newcomers while maintaining the affordability, choice, and lifestyle that makes Queensland such a great place to live.

“To achieve that goal, a strong, active forum for industry research, advocacy, insight-sharing and collaboration is vital. The UDIA is that forum. It’s a place where people from all sides of the development equation come together to solve challenges and move the property market in a positive direction.

“To work even more closely with the UDIA on this is an exciting opportunity for RPS. We are looking forward to sharing our insights and collaborating with other Institute members through a great program of events and forums in 2021,” Mr Thompson concluded.
