UK Relocation Agent Network Celebrates Annual National Conference and Awards
Posted by: Richard Tucker, Vice President, Supply Chain Management
Some of the UK’s top estate agents, as members of Relocation Agent Network, travelled to London last week to attend the 26th National Conference and Awards, and it was great to see our membership represented so well.
Held at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel on Friday 23 November, the conference programme was packed with industry intelligence and the very latest innovations. It included an exclusive line-up of keynote speakers including, Cally Beaton, media executive and entrepreneur; Oliver Gleave, founder of property software providers, Jupix and Loop; and economist, Roger Martin-Fagg.
The day also featured breakout sessions and roundtables, which allowed delegates to really tailor their ‘conference experience’ by choosing the topics that matter most to them and their businesses. From marketing and social media, to compliance and employee engagement, each roundtable was hosted by an expert in their field, who shared the latest innovations and best practices.
Our bespoke conference mobile app also made the event as interactive as possible, which enabled delegates to network with one another in the lead up to the conference, as well as giving them the opportunity to take part in live polling and Q&A sessions on the day.
And the Winner is...
The event concluded with our evening Awards Dinner hosted by well-known UK television broadcaster, Huw Edwards. It was a true night of celebration, rewarding the very best members in our Network, including the 2019 Agent of the Year, which was awarded to Drivers & Norris from Greater London [pictured above]. This accolade is awarded to the Network member company who has most excelled in leading the field of estate agency and network standards. Huge congratulations to all of this year’s winners.
When Cartus launched Relocation Agent Network back in 1994, we wanted to create a UK network of ‘Local Experts’ that would guide relocating families through the home buying and selling process. Today, that ‘Local Expert’ ethos still remains, with just one estate agent in any given area selected to join.
Each member of Relocation Agent Network is invited to join (following extensive checks). This means that Cartus can be confident that every one of our Relocation Agent Network members really is the Local Expert in their area, and continues to provide the highest customer service to our UK clients and their international assignees.
