The Australian Property Institute (API) was pleased to welcome over 780 participants to this year’s Queensland Property Conference, making it the largest Queensland Property Conference ever held and one of the largest API conferences in history.
Held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday October 31 and Saturday November 1, delegates were again treated to an exceptional line up of presenters who spoke on a range of current and informative topics, including economics, major projects in Queensland, market updates, loan activity, risk management, legal issues and more.
Delegates attended presentations from some of Australia’s key experts including NAB’s chief economist, Alan Oster, who provided the annual economic update and Nigel Chamier OAM who presented an update on the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Another conference highlight was Saturday’s inspirational address by two Australian explorers, Cas and Jonesy, who took delegates through the highs and lows of their adventures, telling the tale of how they made history by completing the longest unsupported polar expedition of all time. Their presentation captivated the audience while highlighting key leadership and planning qualities essential to your own journey in life.
The API Queensland Division was proud to use this year’s conference as a platform to support beyondblue; an incredible charity whose work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands depression and anxiety, empowering all Australians, at any life-stage, to seek help. The Queensland Property Conference provided beyondblue with increased exposure of their valuable work whilst raising over $1900 for this most worthy charity.
The API Queensland Division thanks the attendees, presenters and partners for their support of this event. The Division also extends a special thanks to the Conference Steering Committee of Aleisha Brookes and Darren Trivett for volunteering their time to put together a diverse and topical program.
The API looks forward to again welcoming delegates to the Queensland Property Conference when it returns to the Gold Coast in 2015.
