ARLA Propertymark Conference 201816 Apr 2018

This is our first time exhibiting at the conference.


I have been attending the ARLA conference for over a decade as a Letting Agent and Fellow of ARLA and I have always found the content interesting and imperative for a regulated and dedicated letting agent. However, in 2016 the conference moved to the Excel Venue in Docklands, which is much larger and allows for an even bigger event to be staged, and, in my opinion, this really has taken THE ARLA CONFERENCE to higher heights.

Not only is the venue a ‘proper exhibition venue’ as opposed to a large hotel, but the conference has attracted some amazing speakers to form really lively debates. We’ve had the likes of Michael Portillo and Lord William Hague, Housing Ministers Brandon Lewis and (almost – well he sent a video message) Gavin Barwell, Political Editor Robert Preston and entrepreneur and Dragons Den personality, Deborah Meadon.

Last year, with the tenant fee ban on the horizon, there were some very lively debates happening on and off stage, and it really did feel like the ‘agent camaraderie’ was stronger than ever, so my team were delighted to have the change to join the exhibitors, as well as be part of the conference.

So this year we can look forward to a motivation speech from the former CEO of Sainsbury’s, Justin King:

We have keynote speeches from Heather Wheeler MP – Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State and Minister for Housing and Homelessness and, in the afternoon, Nick Clegg, Former Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat Leader.  Both, I am sure, will be highly informative and enlightening.

So, our aim is to showcase our digital marketing skills to the agencies attending the show.  We have our green screen set up and a load of props and will be uploading the footage immediately, so that you can share it on social media sites, and have a bit of fun!  We have a couple of amazing offers specially for the ARLA delegates, so you can get a free month of social media posting (yes entirely FREE with no obligation to carry on after the month is over) and £175+VAT off a video day, where you can get all of your offices, staff and USPs out on video, on your social media, on your website or wherever you want to be seen.  We know that video is of huge importance to any business these days, so it is a great chance to get on camera without a very expensive price tag!



And then come along to STAND F7 and have a go!

We look forward to seeing you at the conference, but if we miss you, just get in touch on and, if we see you on the delegates list, the offers still apply!

All the best, I hope you have an amazing time if you are attending.  Plus I hope to see you and say hi!
