The 10th Annual PRRES Conference was held at the Windsor Suite Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand from 25-28 January 2004 and was a huge success with delegates being pampered by the traditional Thai hospitality. It was jointly organised by Thammasat University and the Valuer Association of Thailand. The conference commenced on Sunday evening with a welcome reception and registration at the Windsor Suite Hotel and was formally opened by Dr. Somkit Shatusiphithak, Vice-Prime Minister of Thailand, the following morning. Keynote speakers during the conference included: Professor Dr. Norman G. Miller, Director Real Estate Center and West Shell Jr. Professor of Real Estate and Finance, speaking on the topic of ‘Global Investment Trends’; Mr. Chun-Ying Leung, Chairman of DTZ Debenham Tie Leung Limited, Hong Kong, on ‘Globalization of Real Estate Market’ and Dr. Seek Ngee Huat, Government Investment Corporation, Singapore on ‘Real Estate Investment Portfolio’.
The presentations were conducted in four parallel sessions, commencing with the PhD forum on the Sunday afternoon. The conference Gala dinner comprised a cruise on the Chao Phraya River with awe-inspiring views of Buddhist temples (including
Wat Prayunwong and Wat Arun), the Grand Palace, and river scenes. Guests were entertained with live music and a classical dance extravaganza after which the PRRES awards were announced (refer later). The conference concluded on a high note and looked forward to meeting again in 2005 for the Melbourne conference.
