Understanding market dynamics is key to a valuers success. The state of the current market is showing some signs of things to come, so how will this effect you?

For 2019, we are bringing together Commercial and Retail specialists to provide a pragmatic overview of the current challenges and growth opportunities which exist across both markets. 

You will be exposed to up-to-date analysis of transactions and current trends, this event will provide an insight into the current state of the Brisbane Commercial and Retail property markets and will seek to provide further guidance as to how the rest of the year will unfold. 

Attendance at this event would be of benefit to members and non-members looking for a contemporary analysis of current trends and longer term expectations.
