INTA Congresses

Being a unique international network by its nature involving the participation of a wide range of private and public actors in the fields of urban development, INTA is the forum for all those who want to understand the transformations taking place in urban society, to influence policy and to access the instruments and information to control and manage their own future.

photo-6What is an INTA Congress ?
Most notably achieved through the annual World Urban Development Congress, INTA encourages better dialogue between policy leaders and key actors responsible for the development of urban areas.
The World Urban Congress provides a direct assessment of major urban and regional development projects through case study presentations, debates and technical on-site visits. Members have access to a platform to discuss urban issues of international significance with prominent officials, city leaders and managers. The Congress allows key urban players to exchange experiences and methods.
