27th January saw PDPLA"s best ever presence at the University of Portsmouth student housing fayre held in the Student Union, with 8 landlords represented.
The PDPLA "team" amounted to no less than 14 people, the majority wearing our distinctive "no agency fees" shirts.
We are also now the largest stand at the event, placed strategically at the entrance to the bar/restaurant area - if you let to students, this is the place to go to get their attention.
Footfall to the stand was high, with at least one landlord reporting a record number of viewings arranged during the weekend after the event
PDPLA member (and accredited landlord) Gilly Fairhall- who is in her fifth year at the event- said "It was a fantastic event, this is the first time I have taken a helper and we had so many enquires it needed two of us to deal with the viewing requests and write down the phone numbers"
As ever, there is a second event, on Friday 24th March. Tables in our zone are £200.00 per table, for a whole table BUT if you only have a few houses, PDPLA have come to an arrangement to help you get represented on the day by taking a shared table.
The Student Union have agreed that as Alwin will take a full table, we can have a second table on a shared basis
Alwin said "if there is enough interest, we will share the cost of the table on a per house listed basis, so if we can list 10 houses, and just one of those is yours, you could have a presence at the event for as little as £25.00. You do not even have to attend"
PDPLA members will have the option of supplying their own flyers or, again if there is enough interest, providing information to go on a joint flyer
