The organisers of next week’s ESTAS Estate & Letting Agent Awards, the biggest and glitziest event on the industry calendar, have just released details of the big day.
It takes place on Friday of next week, May 10, and is sure to be one of the most fun industry events of the year - and, for the first time, there’s also an official ESTAS After Party sponsored by the awards’ headline partner Zoopla.
So, in the words of the event organisers, here is all you need to know about the big day:
What makes The ESTAS so special? The ESTAS are the biggest awards event for the estate and letting agent industry in the UK with just over 1,000 guests attending this year’s event. The awards are unique as the winning agents, mortgage advisors and suppliers are selected purely on customer service ratings provided by customers - 45,000 submitted reviews this year.
Can I attend? Yes, tickets are available to all property professionals and there are still a few available. You can book tickets online at https://www.theestas.com/book-tickets
Should I attend? Yes, it’s an inspiring day and a fantastic opportunity to network with the property industry’s finest agents, brokers and suppliers. With all the doom and gloom around it’s a chance to remind yourself why you work in this great industry of ours and celebrate with likeminded businesses.
Where does it take place? The ESTAS are a lunch time event and is held each year in the spectacular Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London (Friday 10th May this year). The lavish ballroom was originally designed as an ice rink for British Royalty. The room also hosts the BAFTA dinner each year. The Official ESTAS After Party is also at the hotel.
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.
