We’ve just returned from yet another exciting and informative Relocation Agent Network National Conference and Exhibition (RAN Live). The day was packed with the latest industry innovations, business best practices and insights from experts in the field that we can’t wait to put into practice, to help our customers. The theme “Making Connections Count” was welcomed after last year’s event was held virtually – it was truly a time of learning, networking, and celebrating. 

Taking place on 3 December 2021 at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole, the event included expert keynote speakers, two breakout sessions, an international panel, and a trade exhibition.

The speaker line-up includes:

  • Roger Martin-Fagg – leading global economist, on trends in the economy and the property market
  • Kate Ancketill- business futurist, on the future of high street retail and real estate
  • Peter Brodnicki – CEO, Mortgage Advice Bureau, on the power of connection
  • Nathan Emerson – CEO, Propertymark, with a legislative update
  • Christopher Watkin – industry consultant, hosting a best practices panel for building your business
  • John Bullock and Tony Morris – Expert Sales Trainers, TMI
  • Melanie Howell – Expert Lettings Trainer, Manning Stainton

    The day culminated in a stunning formal evening black-tie Awards Dinner with live band Madhen, hosted by the television broadcaster and technology journalist, Georgie Barrat
