Overview

The 2015 national conference will enable traders and investors to learn from ten highly respected Australian and international professionals – at the only event of its kind in Australia dedicated to achieving Trading and Investing excellence!

Since the Tulip Bubble Craze and market crash in the 1630s, there have been at least 10 major stock market bubbles and crashes, with six of these in the last 40 years! Could you recognise a bubble forming and a crash looming? Would you know how to avoid it? Or perhaps how to exploit it? 

The premier Australian event for technical analysts,
to get together for 3 full days of education, networking and strategies.
 

The 2015 conference will include studies of market bubbles over the decades – what caused them, how to spot them, how to avoid them in future, and how to exploit them going forward. And in between them, there are bull markets to jump into – but how do we spot them? And how can we take advantage of them? 

The conference content and networking discussions will benefit traders and investors at all levels of experience, and will cover a range of financial instruments. 

Conference location 

The conference will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, best known for its sand, surf, sunshine and stunning coastline bordering lush, hinterland rainforests, with lots of natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle. Consider extending your stay to sightsee and enjoy some of the unique attractions and activities in South East Queensland. [For Gold Coast information visit: www.visitgoldcoast.com

Alternative accommodation

Many conference delegates are budget conscious and may want to look for alternative accommodation nearby. Within walking distance of the Crowne Plaza there are many options in terms of rooms, flats and apartments. There are so many that we are not in a position to name or recommend any; but you might wish to share a room with a colleague to help reduce the costs.

Flights and transfers

For those planning to fly in, the Gold Coast airport at Coolangatta is a largish airport with several daily flights with major airlines from regional, interstate and international locations (yes, it is an international airport). The airport is a 30-45 minute drive from the hotel, with several airport transfer options. [See more details about the airport and facilities: http://goldcoastairport.com.au/ ] Some airlines (such as Jetstar) periodically offer heavily discounted airfares, so be on the lookout for these.

Local light rail – The Gold Coast G:link light rail service stops at the front door of the hotel (Florida Gardens station). The G: light rail system services 16 tram stations along a 13 kilometre stretch from Gold Coast University Hospital in the north to Broadbeach in the south.
