2013 Conference

What are we waiting for? Shackled or free?

The consensus?  Property markets continue to have solid returns, new unlisted property product is being released, investors are re-entering the market.  Looks like we are free to forge ahead.


The PFA would like to thank all of the Sponsors, speakers and delegates who helped to make the PFA Conference 2013
a memorable event of knowledge and networking.



Some delegate feedback about the Conference:

"Great speakers, relaxed atmosphere, good social events."

"Great venue.  Great content and speaker line up."

"Quality and knowledge of the speakers.  All speakers are forthright with their views and opinions."

"All good speakers.  Dealt with relevant issues."

"Speakers.  Content.  Pacing.  Food. Activities.  Accommodation."

"It ticked all the boxes.  A great, valuable and worthwhile experience.  Hope to be back next year."
