LJ Hooker Summit 2012

QLD - Saturday 26 May - Tuesday 29 May 2012

at the Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa, Gold Coast, Queensland

We’re getting the LJ Hooker family together - come and join us!

We have created a new and exciting format for LJ Hooker people and their families to come together, gain, share knowledge and have some fun. The newly refurbished Sheraton will be the official home of LJ Hooker during the Summit and special accommodation rates have been secured for you.

The Summit commences with the Queensland Night of The Stars at the RACV Royal Pines Resort and concludes on Tuesday 29 May with LJ Hooker’s Specialised Meetings taking place at the Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa, Gold Coast.

The Summit has been timed to coincide with the AREC Conference being held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre over two days (27 May and 28 May) and LJ Hooker have negotiated a fantastic rate for LJ Hooker Summit delegates. There are a number of headline speakers scheduled to present at AREC including Donald Trump (via satellite), Tom Ferry, Tom Panos and Verne Harnish. We believe that LJ Hooker people will benefit greatly from seeing these presentations. A VIP LJ Hooker Hospitality Lounge will be set up at the conference and will give Summit Delegates access to refreshments, exclusive LJ Hooker Panel Sessions and the opportunity to network with other delegates.

There is the option to take part in any of the activities that are relevant most to you.

As always, we will be offering a great social programme with fabulous food, top entertainment and a chance to enjoy yourself at Australia’s number one tourist destination- the Gold Coast.

We hope you can join us for the LJ Hooker Summit 2012.
