Property Hunter Convention 2018 held on 9 â€“ 10 June 2018 brings a new breed of convention to the Sabah market. A total of 2,550 convention goers ranging from first-time buyers to industry experts to seasoned investors converged on The Magellan Sutera Harbour Ballroom where the convention was held over the two days. 29 companies and organizations showcased their products at the convention with more than 30 projects on display.
A big attraction to this year's convention were the talks that were held concurrently on two separate stages, namely the Apprentice and Master stages. Topics ranged from investment mistakes, to Airbnb, to tourism, to industry-specific topics like mall management, design and real estate agent certification. Notable speakers present at the convention included Georg Chmiel, Daniele Gambero, Siva Shanker, Ikhram Merican, Humphey Ginibun, Miichael Yeoh and Richard Oon, to name a few. A total of 20 exceptional speakers, all experts in their respective fields, presented their talks, sharing deep insights on their specialized industries with attendees.
The convention differs from the norm by having multiple events happening at the same time. These fringe events, some open to public while some required pre-registration, included the Speed Dating and Matchmaking where developers, agents and the public can quickly match and make a deal; The Lunch and Learn sessions, sponsored by Hap Seng and Nippon Paint Malaysia which saw an outstanding turnout; The evening's Night Crawl, a networking session, and Buka Puasa event for invited guests, both happening in parallel, garnered great reception.
Elson Kho, Director of Maxx Media Sdn Bhd, parent company of Property Hunter, says that the inaugural convention was a massive success. "The convention was a fresh new concept that we carefully curated and we hope it has been a good learning experience for the visitors and conference participants. Our exhibition, which includes property developments as well as home and alternative investment products represent the variety of options available when it comes to buying a home" he said, adding his thanks to everyone that attended and his team for all the hard work leading up to the event.
