The PRDnationwide Annual National Conference took place in Brisbane over three days and included presentations from various agents, panel sessions and keynote addresses from two inspiring speakers.
The Conference Event was headlined with the launch of the PRDnationwide Your Green Guide research report and the Green Housing Scorecard online tool. This was a culmination of a three year research project by PRDnationwide in partnership with key industry organisations and government.
This research project is backed by the Australia Research Council Linkage project funded by the Australian Federal Government and was created in collaboration with Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Germany, and other key industry partners.
The Green House Guide and Green Scorecard online tools provide a comprehensive summary of the benefits of sustainability features within residential property and how those in the industry can play an important part in adding value to the buying and selling journey.
The conference concluded on Saturday with a finale event, the glittering Gala Awards dinner. The Awards saw top agents and offices recognised in the prestigious formal dinner held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“The PRDnationwide Annual Awards recognise the top performers in the network and acknowledge the hard work and effort put in year-round”, said PRDnationwide Managing Director and Chairman Tony Brasier.
“From the support staff to property managers, sales agents and principals, each person contributes toward making PRDnationwide a leader in property knowledge.”
