There are still a few places left at each of two property conferences next week.
Both are on the same day, Wednesday October 14, and attendance at either could be high on the agenda for agents.
At the National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry, the Property Ombdusman scheme is holding its first-ever conference, entitled Raise Your Standards.
It offers four hours of CPD, plus an essential chance to keep up to date with legislation, a chance to bid farewell to outgoing ombudsman Christopher Hamer and an opportunity to meet his successor, Katrina Sporle.
Other speakers include James Munro, who leads the industry regulator, the National Trading Standards Estate Agency Team, run from Powys County Council.
The day-long conference, sponsored by EYE, costs £84 to attend (£120 for non-TPO members) and can be booked online at: https://www.tpos.co.uk/members/tpo-conference
The second conference next Wednesday is being held in London and concentrates on new and emerging names and trends in the sector.
The Future: Property Tech event is at Millbank Tower.
You may be able to find out there whether Google is planning to re-enter the market, as speaker Scott Sinclair, product manager for real estate at Google, will be making a rare appearance on stage.
There may also be a chance to find out about Countrywide’s online strategy from speaker Alex Bailes, chief digital officer of the UK’s largest estate agency chain. In an exclusive interview with EYE, Countrywide CEO Alison Platt recently revealed that the business will offer an online estate agency product of some kind, either by acquisition or launch.
Also due to be speaking is the housing minister, Brandon Lewis, plus a host of well-known industry names and others that may perhaps not be so well-known right now.
Tickets are £125, reduced from £250, for the few remaining places that are available to EYE readers. You will need to use the code IndustryEye50 to get your discount.
