The Dunedin City Forum was held at the Dunedin Centre to consider whether the city was heading in the right direction and whether its priorities were right.
The meeting was held under Chatham House rules, meaning media could attend, but identities could not be revealed, in order to allow free discussion.
Much of the feedback from participants at workshops was about how various sectors could work together to make the city better, as they reported back from discussions on issues including economic development, sustainability, social connectedness, and urban design.
Mayor Peter Chin quipped production in the city would have taken a dive with the number of "significant leaders" attending.
Council chief executive Jim Harland said the forum was part of a variety of public feedback the city would take into account as it planned for next year's annual plan, and the opinions heard could help decisions on whether to put projects off or bring them forward.
Having such a variety of groups also made clear how decisions in one area could affect another.
