When working in such a large industry like building and construction there are countless resources available to builders. Part of these resources includes opportunities to attend various networking and industry events, which you’d be crazy to miss.
Organisations such as the Housing Industry Association or Master Builders Australia hold various events in regional and metro areas to support their members. These events can go from localised networking and social events to state-based information sessions to annual conferences.
While some may not see the value in attending such events it’s important to do your research and make an informed decision as to whether or not you can benefit from the information being shared.
You will need to consider the resources to sacrifice in order to attend, such as time away from your business, however we believe you’ll find your time was spent well and the positives well and truly outweigh the negatives.
What are the benefits?
There are countless benefits to attending networking and industry events, many of which will depend on the nature of the event itself. Benefits may include:
- Meeting industry professionals and developing relationships – this can create further opportunities for your business in the future.
- Hear the latest news about the industry.
- Discover what’s in store for the future.
- Gain a better understanding about what affiliates and competitors may be doing.
- Hear about the annual forecasts – this information will impact your annual business plan.
Hotondo Homes’ encourages members to attend these events and believe they provide great value. We also host our own events including our Annual Conference, which invites all our members and suppliers to come together over four days. During this time they hear from industry leaders such as HIA Chief Economist, Harley Dale as well as other key speakers. The conference sets the perfect scene for our members to spend time away from their business and rejuvenate. Upon returning to their business reinvigorated, they can execute new plans based on the information they heard.
