It features domestic and international speakers who focus on important valuation topics relevant to today’s domestic and global real estate markets.

“As the real estate industry continues to be an important issue for consumers, investors, lenders and governments, valuation professionals must discuss and respond to the evolving needs of an increasingly dynamic and volatile real estate market.
