Presented by The Negotiator, this exciting event is carefully crafted to stimulate, inform and inspire property professionals from businesses large and small, traditional or evolving. You could not spend a more productive and useful day for your business and future, than coming to The Negotiator Conference & Expo.

The Conference Agenda

This unmissable event brings a packed agenda of keynote speakers and lively and revealing panel sessions covering:

CHANGES: The Power of Proptech

The impact, positive and negative, of innovations in property technology on our industry. We will have experts from both sides; those who use proptech effectively in their businesses and those who can see the bigger picture of where new technology is taking our industry. Your takeaways will be how proptech is shaping our industry and how you can benefit from the right proptech in your own business.

This will also be supported by the Proptech Sessions – a series of short TED-style presentations of innovatory products which can bring savings and smooth-running to your business, freeing you up to concentrate on what is important.

CHALLENGES: How regulation and legislation is affecting our industry

The Tenant Fees Bill, anti-money laundering, estate agent and letting agent regulation. These measures, supported across all political colours, are bringing changes which directly affect your revenues, the way your conduct business and effectively the shape of your business and your industry. Keynote speakers will paint a clear picture of where we stand and where we are going. Our panel session will highlight analyse and debate the issues.

Your takeaways will be an understanding of where the industry – and with it, your business – is going in the coming months and years and how best you can prepare for it and meet the challenges head-on.

CHOICES: making the right decisions

You’re faced with a future full of opportunities and change. There are technologies which are disrupting the traditional business model and presenting new ways of running estate and letting agency. Which are the right paths to follow, given so many options? Our afternoon sessions will feature speakers and a panel, who are already on those journeys and will share their experience and insights into the right directions to follow.

Your takeaways will be an appreciation of the evolving shape of the industry, ideas for the development of your business, how to manage and take advantage of this rapidly changing business model.
