The Appraisal Institute will host an international real estate valuation conference next year to focus on the expanding global economy and its impact on the profession, the trade group said today.

The “23rd Pan Pacific Congress of Appraisers, Valuers and Counselors” conference is slated for Sept. 16-19, 2006, in San Francisco, with the theme “The Valuation Revolutions: New Partners, Borderless Markets, Innovative Technology.”

“This Congress will provide U.S. real estate professionals the opportunity to come to a fuller understanding of the truly global nature of the valuation profession and the role it plays in the international marketplace without leaving the country,” noted 2006 President of the Appraisal Institute Richard D. Powers.

The international event, which convenes every two years, brings together real estate valuation and consulting professionals from throughout the Pacific Rim in an effort to broaden knowledge through an exchange of information and ideas. Delegates to the upcoming event will present papers focusing on the application of the real estate professional’s skills in working for multinational companies or for international investors.

In addition, the event will feature a variety of cultural and social programs and tours, including an opening reception at the Asian Art Museum, one of the largest museums in the Western world devoted exclusively to Asian art.

The Appraisal Institute and the Counselors of Real Estate will represent the United States as one of 10 countries that have organizations with sponsoring member status in the PPC. Other countries include: Australia, Canada, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.
