What a fantastic day we had at this year’s ARLA Conference and Exhibition, the biggest and most prestigious lettings forum in the UK.
It’s the fifth year we’ve been involved so we were well prepared for being crazy busy, meeting and greeting new customers and demonstrating how easy it is to use TouchRight to create some great looking property reports! We also had the opportunity to catch up with our wonderful existing clients and network with industry partners. Our software integration partner FixFlo even treated us to a yummy cupcake to keep our energy levels up, thanks guys!
The sell-out event attracted over 1,000 delegates from residential letting agencies, members of ARLA and NAEA, and property consultants. Eager to get up to date with important industry issues and changing legislation, attendees were treated to a jam packed programme of lively and informative presentations from speakers including ITV Political editor, Robert Peston, and ex-senior politician, Lord William Hague.
The hot topic from agents that we spoke to was the looming changes to tenant fees. Whilst it’s not positive news to the bottom line, it was good to hear people’s thoughts on how they were looking to address the changes, by using more PropTech across their business.
And finally we’d like to give a big shout out and thank you to everyone who struck a pose in the TouchRight Selfie frame for the opportunity to win our Easter hamper. It certainly lit up our Twitter feed for the day! The lucky winner was Paul from The Acorn Group.
The ARLA Conference will be back at the ExCeL in 2018 and we’re looking forward to it already!
