Nine Experts = One Amazing Day

The Property Investors Forum Melbourne will be held on 3 November 2012.

"I really liked the feel of the day
- nobody was there to force products on to you.
It was much more about getting a hold of good information,
with presenters who were varied and interesting."

- Donna Madden (Sydney Forum Attendee)
