Amongst the experienced line up of speakers include Dato’ Ar Aminuddin Manaf – the COO of PR1MA, Dr. Suraya Ismail – Director of Research from Khazanah Research Institute, Adzman Shah Mohd. Ariffin – Director of Exastrata Solution Sdn Bhd and many more. The annual real estate convention has also attracted renowned international speaker namely, Nicholas Holt – Asia Pacific Research Director from Knight Frank International to contribute his professional outlook on affairs surrounding the Asia Pacific property market.

The head of the event organising committee, Sr Dato’ Dr. Tunku Fauzi Bin Dato’ Tunku Abdul Malek Al Haj illustrated the need for the upcoming real estate convention to address most of the concerns of the industry by way of interactive dissemination of information and professional viewpoints from knowledgeable property participants represented as the speakers for the event. “We have targeted audiences from various backgrounds such as developers, investors, bankers, property consultants, academia and students.
