Why attend Conference?


You’ll learn a heap. It might go without saying, but a huge part of Conference is the chance to learn new things but you’d be surprised at just what you can learn. Everyone from first time delegates to industry vets have mentioned how much they’ve taken away from past Conferences, and we’ve designed Conference so that it has something for everyone. From the range of inspiring and industry-leading speakers, to our tailored workshops, and even the chance to learn from your peers, there’s a lot to be learned from Conference.


It gets you out of your comfort zone. Sure, it’s comfortable in your comfort zone, but comfortable doesn’t always help you to expand your experience, or expand your business. By stepping out your comfort zone every once and a while, you open yourself up to new experiences, new connections and give yourself the chance to learn and grow which can help both personally and professionally.


It adds value to your business. If you run or manage an office, there’s so much benefit to sending your team to Conference. It’s a great way to boost morale, team build, inspire creativity and reward your team, whilst helping to boost productivity. If you choose to attend Conference alone, you’ll have so much information and insights to take back and implement into your business, and to teach your teams and colleagues. Not to mention the amazing deals on offer from some of our valued business partners.


You’ll connect with industry thought leaders. Don’t miss the opportunity to chat to our speakers. They have a huge amount of industry knowledge and are great connections to add to your network. Make valuable connections with a wide range of business partners.


You’ll stay ahead of the curve. By learning from a range of industry and thought leaders, Conference will help you stay ahead of the curve so you can be at the forefront of your business, not left struggling to keep up.


You’ll reset. Sometimes it just takes us a moment to get away from our daily routines to really take a step back and properly assess our business. By taking three days out your week, once a year you’re giving yourself the chance to hit that reset button and look at your business from another angle.


You’ll have fun! Whilst there are so many opportunities to network and learn at Conference there’s also a bunch of opportunities to have a lot of fun. From our Opening Launch of Conference to the themed networking functions, to our huge Annual Awards gala, our high energy performances, and entertaining speakers. You have the benefit of attending a career-boosting event and have fun at the same time!


You’ll meet like-minded people. There’s something energising about being in a room with hundreds of people who are in or have been in your shoes. Conference gives you access to the greater Harcourts team from across the country, and you can learn from others who are on the same page as you, or even help others to problem solve. Conference also gives you the chance to make connections with a range of our business partners who can help you in an array of areas for your business.


It helps you to grow. Conference is designed to help you reach the next level – whether that’s in your own business, or in your own career. Industry experts, keynote speakers and the senior leadership team at Harcourts deliver a program each year that will see you well equipped to grow at least one aspect of your career. If you were only to take away and implement even a couple of key learnings, you will be well placed for the year ahead.


That all important face to face contact. Sure, these days there’s lots of industry information available at the click of a button, but don’t undervalue face to face contact. So many of our people cite the valuable conversations and interactions they have whilst at Conference as being one of the most useful parts of attending each year.

Things to Do

Melbourne – a twist at every turn!


Cheer on your heroes by discovering Melbourne’s obsession with football, cricket, soccer and just about anything else that involves working up a sweat. Head to the ‘sports precinct’ to visit the hallowed ground of the MCG.


Home to major cultural attractions, world-class events, tourism experiences and an exceptional array of restaurants, bars and specialty stores, this modern piazza has become the heart and soul of Melbourne.


Combine the best of Europe’s coastal living with the traditional Aussie charm on the Mornington Peninsula, just an hour from Melbourne.


Explore historic arcades and laneways lined with fine dining restaurants, chic cafes, hidden bars and fashion boutiques or head to one of the many lush gardens throughout the city.


Less than an hour from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges is a whole life experience away, offering quality local food and wine, breathtaking scenery, romantic hideaways and indulgent adventures. The Yarra Valley is recognised as one of the world’s premier wine growing regions with over 80 sensational cellar doors, superb restaurants serving fresh regional produce, luxury accommodation, iconic scenery and stunning artwork.


Embrace the seaside lifestyle of Phillip Island. See sunrise at sandy beaches, penguins and koalas up close, and international motor sports at high speed.


During your visit to Melbourne Zoo, you will not only encounter a range of stunning wildlife, but also have the opportunity to connect with and understand these species and support us in our work to fight extinction.


Each township along the Great Ocean Road has it’s own unique story to tell. As you make your way down the road, these stories begin to unfold; stories of amazing adventures, stories of natural beauty, and stories of inspiring artistic endeavour…


Providing panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and Port Phillip Bay, the pier is a popular destination for strolling, cycling, rollerblading and fishing. Catch a ferry to Williamstown, enjoy a snack at the kiosk or try to spot the penguins and native water rats from the breakwater. Whatever your preference, St Kilda Pier provides an unforgettable experience right in the heart of Melbourne.
