RVA New Zealand conference coming to Brisbane

Property Council members are welcome to join the Retirement Villages Association (RVA) New Zealand at its annual conference, which will be at the Brisbane Sofitel on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 July 2019.

The programme includes plenty of Australian topics as well as Kiwi ones! For example, keynote speakers include Raelene Castle, CEO of Rugby Australia, Rev Tim Costello, and Dr Peter Wilton from UCLA Berkeley. Other topics include some original research on public attitudes on retirement villages in NZ, the Retirement Living Council's “A Wise Move” campaign, a panel discussion on putting DMF contracts into care suites, some innovative Australian retirement village business models, a panel on residents’ issues, and plenty more. 

Go to the conference website to find out more! 

Property Council members will enjoy the RVA member early bird discount and pay $1,450 NZD (so it’s a lot less in AUD) with the Early Bird discount expiring on 31 May 2019. To register you’ll need to email Roisin Burns on memberadmin@retirementvillages.org.nz. 

In addition there’s a golf tournament for the highly-contested Grant Adamson Memorial Golf Trophy on Monday 1 July and village site tours on Thursday 4 July.
