- Sydney, November, 2020 - 

Work is under way on Short Term Thinking, the first Australian event focused on short stay accommodation.

It will be an action-packed day where all sectors of the industry can meet, learn and network, setting up their year ahead with new relationships, contacts and prospects.

Space has been blocked for mid-November in Sydney. 

While a  lot can change between then and now, we're confident we'll be able to run a flesh and blood event with live streaming for those who can't make it.

Because final capacity is understandably uncertain at this point, please register your interest to be put on a non-obligatory wait list and also receive the latest updates. 

At the moment we're looking for foundation partners - please call event producer Martin Kelly on 0414 774 978 to find out more.
