The Pacific Rim Real Estate Society Conference - 2000

6th Annual Conference
23-27 January 2000
University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, Australia

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.
