It’s under two weeks to The ESTAS 2018 held in London on Friday April 20.
It’s the biggest and best bash in our industry, so here’s all you need to know about the big day…
What makes The ESTAS so special? The ESTAS are the biggest awards for the estate and letting agent industry in the UK 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 provided by customers, - some 36,000 took part this year.
Can I attend? Yes, tickets are available to all property professionals and there are still some available. You can book tickets online at theestas.com.
Should I attend? Yes, it’s an inspiring day! And it’s also a fantastic opportunity to network with the property industry’s finest agents, brokers and supplier. You can’t help but leave with a big smile on your face and a new spring in your step as you remember why you work in this great industry of ours (Note; this may have something to do with the amount of alcohol you have consumed...).
Where does it take place? The ESTAS is a lunch time event held in the spectacular Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London. The lavish ballroom was originally designed as an ice rink for British Royalty. The room also hosts the BAFTA dinner each year.
What should I wear? It’s a lunch time event so leave the bow tie and ballgown at home. Either a smart suit or a cocktail dress is the order of the day.
