in addition

Karina has posted a bit here and has some value add in her particular area.

Having said all that, what I have found is that almost ALL speakers at these things will have something of value add for all !

Might only be a small and seemingly insignificant thing, like in many books, there is ONLY line of gold, while the rest looks like mullock.


Thanks Rolf,

I've got them all marked down and planning my day to see as many as possible.



I think it's an individual thing based on where you are in your property journey and what your interest is.
ie are you looking for PPOR? Investment? Do you prefer regional/cashflow?

BTW have you got your ticket?

I got free tickets but I hadn't looked at the lineup yet and not 100% sure I'll go.  

We've had a stand at the property show a few times now (and have had lots of SS members pop in to say hi, which is always great fun!) but not this year- have too much work on as it is :D

I always try to make time to listen to some of the other speakers- as Rolf said, you can pick up bits and pieces from everyone and it's amazing how much new information there can be at times. Enjoy!  

Are you sure it's this Saturday, Triv? I thought it was next weekend.

I can teach you the sheepish look...........I have become an expert :)


Free tickets are available.

Promo codes DIYSUPER or DOMAIN will allow you to get some free tickets.

There was a previous post re free tickets (this is just a repeat)

Hope to see some of the SS team on the day.


A lot of very good speakers this year and there are also some very good exhibitors too to glean knowledge from.

I agree with the comment about depending on where you are in your journey, but have been the last few years and despite feeling like a know-it-all at times I always learn something new.

Personally I think the lounge with experts line up is particularly good this year.  

Wonder if they'll tell you the true way to make money on property is to write a book about how to make money on property.
