The 2023 Victorian State Conference was held on the 15th of September and saw over 100 participants enjoy a fantastic roster of guest speakers.

The day commenced with State Planning Minister, The Hon. Sonya Kilkenny MP, followed shortly thereafter by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Sally Cap AO, each speaking passionately about major projects and the influx of population to Victoria, and Melbourne, in particular.

Other speakers contributed on topical issues such as Artificial Intelligence, Carbon Credits, NatHers ratings, the economy and property trends.

Greg Sugars OAM, CEO of principal sponsors, Preston Rowe Paterson, and MC for the day said, “PRP recognises the importance of events like these fostering an environment that encourages dialogue and collaboration among property professionals. Our sponsorship is not merely a contribution but an investment in the future of an industry that is integral to the economic and social fabric of our communities”. He congratulated the API on a great event.
