Tanunda, South Australia 5352

The first ever WASA Regional conference will be held in the Barossa Valley. At the request of API members, we will be enlightening both sides of the border to the similarities and differences between SA and WA.

Delegates will walk away with greater insights of the Barossa region, encouraging them to think outside the square when it comes to the property market and be inclusive of the diverse landscape that Australia provides. Nationally relevant content, including market snapshots, renewable energy, viticulture update and water infrastructure are all highlights on the conference program.

The one-and-a-half-day conference will encompass site visits and informative conference sessions, providing the perfect opportunity for delegates to catch up with old colleagues and friends, and make some new interstate connections.
