Conference floors are an opportunity to meet clients in person and solidify existing business partnerships into long-term relationships. They’re also educational: you can learn from the best in the industry, gain foresight into where it’s headed, and be inspired by other offerings.
In short, if you’re just starting out or looking to grow in the industry, there’s no substitute for industry conferences. If you are looking for a conference outside of your own cluster group or network the following are must-attend events for Australian brokers in 2020:
