Looking back on the Mainstreet Australia National Conference 2023:


It’s a wrap! The 2023 Mainstreet Australia National Conference, Think Big / Act Local was an incredible event. Thank you Hobart, thank you Hobartians, and thank you to the national and international delegates who travelled to the beautiful city for the Conference.

We are blown away with all the positive feedback, engagement, insights, connections, new friends and great times that were had.

This three-day event was so much more than just a conference. It was the coming together of passionate people from all walks of main streets, placemaking and experience.

Despite various backgrounds and fields of expertise, delegates bonded over the commonalities – of which there were many. Not only did the conference deliver a value packed agenda of keynotes, panels, masterclasses and tours – but it also brought together people.

A huge shoutout Elizabeth Joldeski, Georgina Pikoulas, Tennille Mutton, and the committee members who worked tirelessly to bring this Conference together; and the amazing sponsors City of HobartBusiness Events TasmaniaAssemblo, presenters and contributors.

We want what’s best for our main streets, high streets and town centres, for the people who live and love them, and for these spaces and places to grow and adapt in an informed and considered way. Overall, we are certain that many have made new connections, met wonderful people, and taken with them a wealth of insights for action.
