The Property Council Study Tour is a combined package and costs cannot be divided up per tour or per day. You are more than welcome to participate in a portion, however, the full rate will be charged.

As per the Property Council Study Tour Terms & Conditions, costs include accommodation. Delegates are required to stay at the hotel included in the package. Should a delegate want to upgrade their room, or make additional accommodation arrangements, this will be at the delegate’s own expense.

We will endeavour to assist you in any and all ways possible to seek medical treatment whilst on the Property Council Study Tour should you require it.

As per the event’s Terms & Conditions, delegates are responsible for taking out their own travel insurance which in this situation, will cover delegates should they require medical assistance whilst on the Property Council Study Tour.

Delegates are encouraged not to invite their partners to accompany them on Study Tours as due to restricted numbers they will not be able to join the program or social events. 

  • It is the responsibility of delegates to book and cover the costs of flights and any additional accommodation or incidental expenses (including meals) for their partners if invited to attend.
  • Partners will not be included in any aspect of the program or social events unless two full study tour packages are purchased.

Property Council aims to fully utilise your time during Study Tours and as such offers a full itinerary including some cultural experiences. Depending on the final itinerary, Property Council will endeavour to provide free time for shopping, sightseeing and any other activities that delegates may wish to partake in.

Attendance to any session is at all delegates’ discretion however the Property Council encourages all delegates to attend all sessions, to appreciate the full value of the tour. Should you not wish to attend certain sessions, you must notify a Property Council staff member at your earliest convenience.

Delegates will not be eligible for a refund of part refund if they do not participate in a session(s). 

Yes. Please book your flights, accomodation and travel accordingly.

It is completely up to you which airport you fly in to but we definitely recommend Haneda as it’s much closer to the hotel and CBD.

We start and end the tour in Tokyo so most delegates will get a return flight from here but our final night is in Osaka so delegates will take the bullet train back to Tokyo on the 23 March at their leisure (the final official part of the program is the dinner in Osaka on 22 March). For delegates wanting to visit places like Kyoto etc, this can be easily accessed from Osaka and delegates can choose to fly out from wherever works best for them.

Absolutely (and again it is up to delegates what time they take it on 23 March)

This is a work in progress, but we can share a draft next week if that’s helpful.

Once we have re-confirmed all the projects we will add it online and also include it in our EDMs. 

6 nights, 3 in Tokyo (17, 18 and 19) and 3 in Osaka (20,21 & 22). We have slightly tweaked the program so delegates can fly in on Sunday 17 March and we will have casual networking drinks that night for all arrivals.

Confirmation of booking  A registration is not confirmed until full payment is made. A registration will be considered tentative pending receipt of full payment within seven (7) days.

Late registrations  Registrations made after Thursday 1 February 2024  may incur additional fees due to increased hotel rates.

Tour capacity  Property Council requires a minimum number of twenty (20) delegates for the International Study Tour to proceed. If minimum numbers are not achieved, Property Council has the right to cancel the tour…
