Policy and Advocacy

UDIA has proved itself to be a strong and consistent voice for the industry both publicly and privately with regular communications with government, media, members and more recently, the consumer audience. We continue to present evidence-based solutions to policy-makers and have achieved multiple key advocacy wins on behalf of our membership and the industry.


Industry Intelligence

UDIA has identified a strong industry appetite for intelligence and current information provided on a regular basis. We have therefore increased our research and communication activities, enabling us to feed this appetite and continuously adapt to the changing nature of member and industry needs. 



UDIA’s functions and events program has always been well regarded by the industry and we have continued to see significant growth in this area over the last 18 months. Attendance numbers have increased due to better topics, venues and greater value delivered to attendees.



We are seeing more enquiries in our EnviroDevelopment (ED) program than ever before. With sustainability at the forefront of the public agenda, our ED certification provides a critical edge for developers looking to differentiate their properties and achieve better business returns.


UDIA’s Awards for Excellence Program celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015.  The program is one of the industry’s most highly regarded forms of recognition and offers applicants and winners great marketing and promotional value. In 2016, we moved the program to an online system in order to streamline the application process, information collection and judging process. Application numbers have doubled in 2016 due to the new approach, and we expect the Awards Program’s reputation to improve even further due to these process improvements.
