The API Rural Conference is a perfect opportunity to mix with your colleagues, share knowledge and receive six CPD Points.

The conference has been organised with local practitioners to address topical issues of general interest in the region. The conference program provides a snapshot of the current regional market.

This year we are kicking off the conference with a welcome dinner on Thursday evening, and are fortunate to have Stacey Lymbery, Breakfast Presenter, ABC Riverland as guest speaker. Stacey will look at the economic, social and international challenges for the property market in the Riverland, and the possibilities for the future. 





Stacey’s working life began as a teenager when a Ballroom dancing lesson set her on a property career path for the next 15 years! After buying, selling, renting and renovating properties, Stacey re-­skilled and has now worked in all facets of media:

• In front of the camera as a presenter and interviewer
• On-­air as a radio host with WaveFM, PowerFM and 2ST
• Behind the scenes with Channel 7 as a producer and researcher on property auction show ‘Under The Hammer’

In 2016, Stacey moved to South Australia to take up the role of Breakfast Presenter at ABC Riverland and is loving the beauty of the region and the opportunity local radio offers. With an enquiring mind and a natural ability to find a story, Stacey's favourite job is the one where she can ask questions, and communicate stories in a compelling and authentic way.
