AS PART of its ninth Loyal Buyers Reward Programme, Andaman Group gave away 120 entry tickets to selected customers to attend the Property Outlook Conference 2015, which took place recently.
Andaman Property Management Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Seri Dr Vincent Tiew said the company chose to provide a different form of incentive for its loyal buyers, seeking instead to offer enlightening experiences about the property industry.
“Traditionally, in the beginning of each year, the property industry will hold a conference of considerable proportion to provide insights on the outlook of the industry.
“This is an opportune moment to enrich buyers with knowledge and network opportunities,” he said.
Tiew explained that although the value of money had gone down, investments can sustain itself depending on how buyers invest and what they invest in.
“The conference is about communicating how people can hedge themselves in their investments.
“Buyers will learn different aspects and thoughts from various key speakers as they shed light on options, tools, methods and strategies to apply when considering property investments,” he told.
He was also confident that despite the challenging times that lie ahead, purchase and investments in property will still be at an encouraging level.
“It is very important to practice smart property investment especially in the current economy.
