Annual PRRES Conference

You are invited to the 26th Annual PRRES conference to be held in Canberra, Australia. January 2020 - link to Conference site

The annual PRRES Conference is the signature event for the Pacific Rim Real Estate Society and has achieved an A rating with the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative. Each PRRES conference includes presentations from Australian and international speakers at the forefront of research and policy-making and brings together a multi-disciplinary group of leading property researchers from the Pacific Rim region and beyond. For attendees there is the opportunity to hear from leading key note speakers, to present refereed and non-refereed papers, to participate in research colloquiums and thought leadership sessions and to network with colleagues from across the region. Registration at the conference confers membership of the Society, allows attendance at the AGM and Board membership, offers access to the Pacific Rim Property Research Journal, the opportunity to publish in the journal and the chance to win one of the many prizes, scholarships and awards, including monetary, that are awarded by the Society each year. The Pacific Rim Real Estate Society is most welcoming of new and early career academics and, with social events offered each evening of the conference, has a reputation as being particularly friendly and inclusive for researchers in both academia and industry. We look forward to seeing you at our next conference, details of which are available through this site.

The Proceedings from the 25th PRRES Conference Melbourne Australia (January 2019) are now online.
