One of the biggest days of the year for agents takes place just two weeks tomorrow when The ESTAS take place on Friday May 12.
Here’s all you need to know about the biggest bash in our industry.
The ESTAS are the UK's biggest awards event for agents and 1,000 guests will attend this year.
The awards are unique as the winning agents, mortgage brokers and suppliers are selected purely on customer service ratings, and this year a remarkable 34,000 took part this year.
Can I attend? Yes, tickets are available to all property professionals and there are still some available. You can book online at www.theestas.com.
Should I attend? Yes, it’s an inspiring day, and a fantastic opportunity to network with the property industry’s finest. You can’t help but leave with a big smile on your face and a spring in your step as you remember why you work in this great industry (and if that is not inspiring enough, a drink or two may have been taken...)
Where does it take place? The ESTAS are held in the spectacular Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. The lavish ballroom was originally designed as an ice rink for British Royalty and it’s the venue that hosts the BAFTA Awards dinner each year.
What should I wear? It’s a lunch time event so leave the bow tie and ballgown at home - a smart suit or a cocktail dress is the order of the day.
Angels Media, the publisher of Estate Agent Today, is the official media partner for The ESTAS so our team will see you there!
