The Future of Central Geelong series of virtual member briefings aim to dive deeper into the issues, challenges and opportunities facing central Geelong in a COVID-normal world. Kicking off in May, this series is due to run through to July and various industry experts will share their ideas and plans on how to best design central Geelong’s future.
