What a great day we had at this year’s ARLA Propertymark Conference and Exhibition, the largest and most attended event in the private rental sector.
It’s the sixth year we’ve been involved so we were well prepared for a busy day, meeting and greeting potential customers and demonstrating our new app, and how it’s even easier to use TouchRight to create professional property reports at the touch of a button! We also had the opportunity to catch up with our existing clients, integration partners and and network with other industry suppliers.
The sell-out event attracted over 1,000 delegates from residential letting agencies, members of ARLA and NAEA, and property consultants. Keen to get up to date with important industry issues and changing legislation, attendees were treated to a jam packed programme of informative presentations from speakers including Heather Wheeler MP – Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State and Minister for Housing and Homelessness and Nick Clegg, Former Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat Leader.
Throughout the day we spoke to a wealth of agents and hot topics included the looming ban on letting fees, regulation changes and the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation. It was great to hear opinions on how agents plan to address the changes, including integrating PropTech into their business processes to reap a host of benefits.
We’d like to give a special thank you to everyone who struck a pose in the TouchRight selfie frame for the opportunity to win our hamper, which was packed full of Betty’s treats. The lucky winners were the team from CJ Hole in Bristol. Congratulations guys!
The ARLA Propertymark Conference will be back in 2019 and we’re looking forward to it already!
