In 1995, John McGrath made the decision to attend a real estate conference in the USA

His desire was to access top-level thinking that would enhance his role in Australian real estate and improve the local industry as a whole.

Inspired by the high standard of training and actionable ideas he gained from America’s top agents, John returned to Sydney with a first hand insight into the value of these conferences. Frustrated that no similar event existed in Australia, he invited the US presenters out to speak. They accepted and John became an early market disruptor, staging the first AREC conference.

The AREC brand was founded on the belief that regardless of what the market is doing, it’s what you’re doing that’s important – there is no reason not to be successful. The conference has grown exponentially over its 21 years, attracting the world’s leading speakers, motivational coaches and industry shapers, including home-grown visionaries and experts. More than 4,000 attendees annually take away phenomenal content to help them take control of their destiny.

AREC is proud to be part of their story.
