Mainstreet SA State Conference 2017

REGISTER NOW for the 2017 Mainstreet SA State Conference at the Stamford Grand Hotel in Glenelg on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 April 2017.

'Mainstreets - Investing in the Vision'

To thrive a mainstreet requires a well-considered vision and buy-in from stakeholders. These may include local government staff, elected members, landlords, traders, consultants and the local community.

While financial investments in mainstreets deliver positive results, to achieve transformational outcomes stakeholder interests must be aligned towards pursuing a common goal.

The 2017 Mainstreet SA Conference will explore topics designed around creating and sustaining a mainstreet vision to ensure stakeholders remain invested in delivering this vision.


  • Giles Semper - Director of The Means, a consultancy that delivers BIDs (Business Improvement Districts) in the UK and provides strategy advice in Europe and elsewhere;
  • Gill Plume and Claire Siddens - experienced economic development and business association management practitioners via their past and present work with Auckland City Council, NZ
  • Nicole Maslin - Executive Officer Mainstreet Australia, VIC.
