Since launching in 2008, Property Portal Watch has held 11 conferences around the world in which C-Level managers from property portals get together for 2 or 3 days to discuss the major issues facing their businesses.
We have held conferences in San Francisco, New York, Singapore and Barcelona with over 1,000 attendees.
The most recently held conference was in Singapore in May this year (2014) where we had 120 C-Level managers from 26 different countries. Our conferences also attract investors, traditional media, and suppliers to the industry.
Next Conference and Master Class – Barcelona (October 2014)
Our next conference is coming up in October this year. From the 1st to 3rd we will be in Barcelona at the famous Hotel Arts. We expect to have over 300 people attending this conference.
In addition to this, we will be holding our first Property Portal Master Class on the 30th September – the day before the conference begins.
