Rural Queensland Property Conference (Q170505)
The 2017 Rural Queensland Property Conference has been specifically tailored by industry professionals to address issues that are topical and of vital importance to property professionals and related professions.
Delegates will have the opportunity to hear and discuss a range of topics currently influencing the rural property industry such as the climate outlook for rural Australia, the outlook for Australia’s agricultural commodities, important updates on Leasehold Land, Vegetation Management and Queensland Resources, insights into technology along with the opportunities and challenges faced by various agriculture, beef and lot feeder industries.
The one and a half day conference provides the perfect opportunity for delegates to catch up with old colleagues and friends over a quality professional development and networking program.
Queensland’s Hervey Bay will host this year’s conference. A scenic 3.5 hours’ drive north of Brisbane, or 45 minutes by air, Hervey Bay is bordered by 40 kilometres of pristine beaches making it markedly one of Queensland’s best natural destinations.
