2015 Property Business Lunch


Australia’s property market is continually challenged by external and internal fiscal and governmental issues.

Our panel of experts discuss and explore what the key drivers are in the property market that will stimulate Australia’s economy, and how factors such as Governments, international investment, environmental pressures as well as cost of capital and cost of labour intertwine to produce Australia’s next boom or bust.

Our four prominent industry experts, included:
