Though the conference will be a completely different experience for all, ARMA have worked hard to enable it to go ahead for its members and non-members. Due to the impact of COVID-19 and wanting to ensure everyone’s safety, for the first time ever, the conference will be held digitally with this years theme being ‘Recovery and Beyond’.

What Is The ARMA Conference?

The ARMA Conference is an annual conference for the Association of Residential Managing Agents. It is the sector’s leading event for leasehold professionals where big issues are addressed by important speakers.

The event provides an in-depth look at the latest issues affecting property managers, a detailed analysis of the current technical, economic and legal matters and allows delegates to listen to expert and engaging industry speakers dealing with the key topics of the day.
