Conference Registrations To Close Early

Property Institute Conference Registrations To Close Early

The New Zealand Property Institute conference registrations will close early, Institute CEO, Conor English said today.

"Due to shear pressure of numbers we cannot guarantee that we will accept more registrations for the conference, from today.

"If we receive any further registrations from people wanting to come, they may or may not be able to come to this excellent event. We will have to come back to them individually and let them know. So from today nothing is guaranteed"

"Unfortunately we simply have physical constraints with the venue which mean we will not be able to accept everyone who wants to come to what will be an excellent event. We are working hard to see what we can do.

"The combination of excellent international and domestic speakers, focussed workshops, excellent social calendar, five star venue, and the knowledge that there will be a great crowd there, have been a devastating combination that has been irresistible to hundreds of property people!"

Mr English said the conference organising committee of Nick Hargreaves, Convenor; Andrew Brown, program; Wendy Sharkey, Tony Catton, Mike Clark, Gray Pearson, John Dunn, Brett Whalley, Brent McGregor, Mike Steur, Peter Dean, Ian Campbell, and Institute Event Manager Jenny Houdalakis had done a fantastic job so far. .
