The experience of Congress is very nurturing in
many ways - 900 people working toward a common
goal of continuing to improve our industry
- it really is the reason we all get out of bed every
morning. The people.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first Property Council of
Australia Congress. Coming together for the first
time in two years, there was a real buzz around
the place and Hobart made an excellent host city.
I connected and reconnected with a number of
industry participants and enjoyed all of the sessions
I attended. Dylan Alcott was a stand out for
me. This will definitely not be my last Congress -
see you all at the Gold Coast!

The Property Congress is always a great opportunity
to connect across our amazing industry, and
hear from some incredible speakers. It's not often
you get to learn from ex-Prime Ministers and community
leaders like Dylan Alcott, in a room full of
old and new friends, collaborators and clients

SEE YOU ON THE GOLD COAST IN 2022!
