John McGrath was inspired by the high standard of training and actionable ideas he gained when he met and learnt from America’s top real estate agents by attending their industry events. Returning to Sydney with an enormous understanding of the value these conferences bring, John invited the US presenters to speak in Australia. They accepted and shortly afterwards, John became an early market disruptor, staging the first AREC conference in 1997.
The AREC brand was founded on the belief that regardless of what the market is doing, it’s what you’re doing that’s important – there is no reason not to be successful.
Today, the conference has grown exponentially over 20 years, attracting the world’s leading speakers, motivational coaches and industry shapers, including our home-grown visionaries and experts.
Rockend is proud to be part of the AREC story and we will again partner with them this year, to showcase our product range, including PropertyTree, as well as creating a lounge area where delegates can take time out, engage with the Rockend team, recharge their phones and enjoy our hospitality.
AREC is held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre and runs from May 28-29, 2017.
