On 5 June 2014, ALTO hosted its inaugural Property and Construction Event at BMW Southbank. Guests were treated to a magnificent evening of speeches, wine and drinks by our gracious sponsors BMW. Following a short greeting by BMW’s wonderful Greg Agosta, a discussion between some of Australia’s major property heavyweights was MC’d by ALTO President John Persico.
Salta’s Sam Tarascio, Schiavello’s Rob Tigani and Grocon’s Joe Brinzi discussed the heartwarming stories behind these family businesses, in their quest for success. They discussed the instrumental role of hard work, family and luck in bringing them to where they are today, drawing on the rich Italo-Australian family history of each of the company founders.
The state of the Melbourne property market was also a hot topic, with questions posed around what the future of the apartment market was, and the effect of foreign buyers in Melbourne.
Overall the night was ALTO’s biggest yet, with hundreds of guests in attendance, filling out the BMW showroom. Property seems to be quite a hot topic amongst attendees so we will be sure to repeat the event in 2015 – be sure to be in attendance as we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
