CONFIRMED: RICHARD QUEST TO BE MASTER OF CEREMONIES AT THE SAPOA 50TH ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION & PROPERTY EXHIBITION
CNN's foremost international business correspondent and New York based presenter of Quest Means Business, Richard Quest, will be the Master of Ceremonies at the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) 50th Anniversary Convention and Property Exhibition. The three day event, which will bring together the most influential national and international property professionals under one roof, will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre from 21 to 23 June 2016. The move to Sandton ICC will save 85% of our members travel and accommodation costs.
SAPOA CEO Neil Gopal says he is delighted to have Quest on board for the second time as MC of the convention at another SAPOA milestone. “Quest's dynamic and distinctive style has made him a unique figure in the field of business broadcasting. He recently attended the Davos 2016: World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and we look forward to hearing his insights.” Quest was the MC at the 45th Convention held in 2013.
Gopal adds that this year also marks a significant milestone in the history of SAPOA, as we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary. “50 years of existence adds a great deal to the credibility, longevity, staying power and success as the voice of the commercial property industry. We will be celebrating and promoting our 50th anniversary by redefining our organisation and thanking members for decades of patronage at the convention in June.
SAPOA will select thought-provoking local and international speakers to share their expertise and knowledge.
A major highlight of the three day convention and part of the property focus is the presentation of two much-anticipated awards, the SAPOA Property Journalism Awards and the SAPOA Innovative Excellence Awards.
The SAPOA Journalism Awards will recognise and honour South African property journalists who have made a noteworthy contribution to the commercial and industrial property industry through quality media coverage of the property industry in broadcasting. The Innovative Excellence Awards will showcase the outstanding contributions from world-class owners, developers and built environment professionals who create more smarter and beautiful buildings every year that significantly enhance the industry.
The three day event promises to be the ultimate networking event for property professionals, offering unrivalled opportunities to engage with industry leaders.
