The NZ Realtors Rural Network Conference was held on the West Coast in late July with over 70 representatives from across New Zealand attending the two-day event.
Delegates enjoyed a networking evening at Monteith’s brewery, a conference and gala dinner at The West Coast Events Centre, and a tour of Cranley Farms which showcased the potential and possibilities of dairy farming in the region.
NZ Realtors Rural Network general manager and conference organiser, Donna Peffers said there was a good representation amongst the attendees from Kerikeri to Dunedin and the event was “a great opportunity to get together and gain knowledge”.
Each year the conference is held in a different location, and this year it was all about supporting the West Coast, said West Coast Rural area manager of Property Brokers Gareth Cox. “It’s good as a Coaster bringing people throughout the country to the West Coast and showcasing what we’ve got.’’
Through a combination of silent and live auctions the delegates raised a phenomenal $54k for the Buller Mayoral Relief Fund which is supporting communities impacted by the recent flooding.
