The 6th Pacific Rim Real Estate Society Conference
was held in Sydney, Australia. This year is a special year for PRRES as it marks the
tenth anniversary of the founding meeting in Christchurch of our
predecessor, the Australasian Real Estate Educators conference.
Over the past years PRRES has continued to grow and indeed
contributed to making the land economics/property discipline
recognised as a distinct body of knowledge.
The conferences have allowed academics and researchers to present
and discuss papers on their research and to keep abreast of the
rapidly changing technology. The introduction of refereed papers
has been responsible for a high standard of papers.
PRRES plays a major role in the continued development of the
"international property community". PRRES, along with
the American (ARES), European (ERES), Asian (AsRES), African (AfRES)
and Latin American (LARES) Real Estate Societies form the network
structure for the International Real Estate Society (1RES) to
further develop international property research and education.
Over 80 papers were presented at this conference
from all areas of property research. Presenters are truly
international, with papers being presented from Australia, New
Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, China, USA, UK, Sweden,
Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, Finland and Thailand. Approximately
30% of these papers have been fully refereed by members of the
Organising Committee and are published on this web site.
