A Place in the Sun is pleased to invite you to our programme of online webinars

The show must go on... line!  

While many of us are house-bound with limited options to travel, and with our London exhibition now postponed, we thought we would bring some insight and inspiration directly into your home! 

We are pleased to announce that we are running a series of A Place in the Sun online webinars covering all aspects of buying property overseas with input from a range of overseas property professionals and our amazing TV presenters - brought to you safely at home by the miracle of online technology. While we have a short pause to our normal way of life, now could be the time to carry out in-depth research to make sure you have everything set up, ready to go when the current situation passes.

We are kicking off with a busy programme of seminars that would have been taking place as part of A Place in the Sun Live at London Olympia, moving our Hub - the main stage at our events - online for all to see. Following that, we will move on to additional sessions based on your feedback and interest , so if you have any suggestions for sessions that are not listed below, please forward them to us at marketing@aplaceinthesun.com
