WA’s State of the Market - Commercial breakfast will give you a chance to hear directly from industry leaders across differing commercial property sectors. 

This year instead of looking at the market overall, we will be delving deep into market sectors, developments and case studies including:

  • Perth Airport developments
  • Bunbury growth
  • Revitalisation of Subiaco
  • CBD Office Market

These experts will provide a snapshot of their industry, then come together in an interactive panel session.

For those working in, or with an interest in the commercial property market sector, this is an event not to be missed!
