About 2024 NZPIF Conference

The Canterbury Property Investors Association is extremely proud to be hosting the 2024 NZPIF Annual Conference over the weekend of Friday 18th – Sunday 20th October 2024. The conference theme, ‘Changing Landscapes’, is inspired by the rebuild of our ever-evolving city.

Property investment is impacted and encompasses many different landscapes and environments, ranging from changing political landscapes in government and regulation, constantly changing economic and taxation landscapes, to changing property investment landscapes with strategies for residential and commercial investment, old versus new, student and social housing, as well as minor dwellings and subdivisions.

Property investment involves a myriad of activities, services and industries in the pursuit of knowledge to allow investors to make the best investment decisions to suit their circumstances.

We have secured a line-up of expert speakers that will provide the latest information on topical issues affecting property investment. The Keynote speaker is well known investment and property commentator Michael Yardney who is one of Australia’s leading authorities in wealth creation through property.

Not only are we bringing in experts in their fields, we hand-picked a number of highly successful local property investors who will share their unique journeys and strategies to achieve success through property investment, through both residential and commercial real estate. Some of these investors who will share their story include Liz Harris, Miles Yeoman, Lily Cooper and Hamish Wilson.

In addition to the formal programme, on Friday afternoon complimentary bus tours will take delegates on a fascinating trip around the central city and suburbs showcasing the extensive development of Christchurch over the last decade, as well as the character that has been retained. A cocktail evening on the Friday night will welcome delegates to Christchurch and provide an opportunity to connect and network with likeminded investors. The Gala dinner on Saturday evening will showcase top achievements by NZ investors at the NZ Federation awards, and then delegates can dance the night away with local entertainment.

We look forward to welcoming you to our city and to the property investment world of ‘Changing Landscapes’. See you in Christchurch October 2024!
