250+ Networking Delegates


Building on the success of our inaugural VILLAGE SUMMIT with 120 delegates, the VILLAGE SUMMIT 2021 returns to Sydney.

Further building on the success of the DCM Institute, with 380 village management participants across Australia, the VILLAGE SUMMIT 2021 will host more than 250 delegates.

This premier event is designed to acknowledge and reward delegates for the vital and central role they play in making their village a success for residents and a success for their operator.


Premium venue, premium networking

The Sheraton Grand is located in the centre of Sydney’s CBD and premier shopping strip, next to Centrepoint and the Pitt Street Mall. Overlooking Hyde Park, the Sheraton Grand is a five star venue.

Delegates will appreciate the same experience as the Leaders who attend our LEADERS SUMMIT, with barista coffee breaks, seated luncheons and a premium dinner experience at QVB Tea Rooms, Sheraton Grand or The Mint, with delegates seated with colleagues from their own state for collegiate networking.


Invest in your management talent
