Field Shops

To ensure our delegates are fully immersed in the #Liveable experience, RMLA’s Field Shops break our delegates out of the conference room, giving them first-hand insight into Auckland’s unique attributes.

Our Field Shops address the resource management challenges that Auckland’s growing population presents, from new housing supply, infrastructure design and delivery, to re-gentrification and renewal of older urban areas, through to conservation of natural habitats.
