API National Property Conference

Thursday 2 November to Saturday 4 November 2017

The API National Property Conference features an exciting and informative program designed by the property industry, for the property industry.

Our dedicated Conference Steering Committee has worked tirelessly to bring you over 22 sessions across two days. The National Property Conference gives you the opportunity to customise your conference experience to get the most out of both the conference sessions and networking functions.

The 2017 API National Property Conference promises an incredible line up of speakers who will address topics of national interest such as economics, infrastructure, market updates, legal issues, technology, business skills and more.



Anna Meares set to inspire delegates on Saturday 4 November

Anna Meares is considered by many to be the greatest cyclist of all time and made Olympic history by being the only athlete to win individual medals at four consecutive Olympic Games. Anna has collected 18 gold medals, 16 silver medals and 10 bronze medals at Olympic, World and Commonwealth Games level. 

Anna’s story is one of courage and inspiration, tragedy and triumph.

Anna will join the API National Property Conference as a keynote speaker.  Join us on Saturday 4 November and be entertained, inspired and uplifted by this very special Australian.


Andrew Daddo to MC this year's Conference

A regular face on Australian television, stage and film, Andrew Daddo is one of Australia’s most loved.

Andrew is an Author, Columnist, Corporate Coach, Radio Broadcaster and TV Presenter. He recently survived several weeks in the jungle on the first series of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

A hilarious night of entertainment

Cal Wilson came across the Tasman in 2003 and has gone on to become one of our most popular comedians, a perennial favourite on television shows such as Have You Been Paying Attention?, Spicks and Specks, Good News Week and Thank God You’re Here. Her stand up shows are as engaging as they are hilarious, often bringing the audience's stories to life alongside her own.

The API National Property Conference Dinner will be held on Friday 3 November 2017 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. 


Proudly sponsored by Defence Housing Australia.
