Connect - Ballarat


2022 Connect Series

The REIV Connect Series heads to Ballarat at the Mercure Ballarat Hotel & Convention Centre.

This event gives our members an opportunity to engage with the REIV closer to where you live and work, in order to provide feedback directly and gain information on the things that matter to your area and business.

This year we welcome new REIV CEO Quentin Kilian who will host our event. This will be a fantastic opportunity to engage with the REIV leadership team and hear directly from them about the year ahead in Real Estate and for the REIV.

Information shared at these events is developed with input from government agencies and member feedback. It encapsulates what we consider best practice at the time.

REIV Partner businesses will also be represented to present Member only deals and offers, and will have some great prize giveaways.
