Property Hunter Conference 2024 sets the stage to revolutionise the industry

In the vibrant heart of the Land Below The Wind, Property Hunter orchestrated a monumental event - the Property Hunter Conference 2024 - with the aim of transforming Sabah’s real estate industry via a business-to-business (B2B) approach.

Held on June 14 at the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC), this exclusive B2B real estate conference was nothing short of groundbreaking, offering a deep dive into housing trends, market dynamics and pragmatic solutions within Malaysia's booming real estate sector.

Property Hunter director Victor Yong heralded the event as a watershed moment for the industry. "The Property Hunter Conference 2024 was a landmark event for the industry. It was incredible to see so many experts come together to share their insights and visions for the future. Stay tuned for more exciting events that will continue to shape the real estate landscape in Sabah and beyond," he said. 

With about 100 elite C-level delegates in attendance, the conference was a hotbed of networking and collaboration among the industry's top minds. One of the star attractions was the land bank, which showcased over 100 prime vacant lands ripe for development, noted Property Hunter Elson Kho.

Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam, who is also the Minister of Local Government and Housing, electrified the audience with his keynote address. He charted the trajectory of Sabah's real estate policies, from historical triumphs to cutting-edge strategies and future initiatives. He also unveiled how the Sabah government is creating a magnet for foreign developers, with programmes and measures that make Sabah’s real estate market irresistibly dynamic.

Among the thrilling topics discussed were:

The Nexus of Urban Planning and Real Estate: Creating Sustainable & Vibrant Communities which was a riveting session exploring the symbiotic relationship between urban planning and real estate, crucial for the sustainability of cities and national development. The discussion underscored the critical need for visionary urban planning and strategic initiatives to foster thriving cities and bolster the real estate industry, ensuring a perfect blend of urban growth and environmental stewardship.

Investment Exploration: Uncover the Distinct Allure of Sabah which was an enthralling session delving into Sabah’s diverse investment landscape, revealing why it has become a magnet for astute investors. Celebrated for its natural splendour, strategic locale, and economic dynamism, Sabah stands tall in the global investment arena. The dialogue illuminated how international investors are captivated by the state's burgeoning potential, while local stakeholders recognize Sabah as a pulsating hub for business expansion.

Tech-Driven Sustainability: Propelling Real Estate into the ESG Era which was a compelling session dissecting the revolutionary impact of technology in championing sustainable practices within the real estate sector. With about 40% of annual carbon emissions stemming from the building and construction industries, the call for sustainable innovation is urgent. The discussion spotlighted PropTech’s pivotal role in transforming the real estate landscape and driving the industry towards an ESG-centric future, asserting that the dawn of sustainable real estate is not just on the horizon but here and now.

The Property Hunter Conference 2024 was a tour de force, uniting the brightest luminaries in real estate to debate, deliberate, and drive the industry's future in Sabah and beyond. For investors, developers, and real estate professionals, the event was an unparalleled opportunity to gain cutting-edge insights and forge invaluable connections, setting the stage for the next era of real estate innovation.
