Message from the conference chair 

It is ten years since the inaugural Real Estate Educators Conference (the forerunner to the present Pacific Rim Real Estate Society (PRRES) was organised, which was held at Lincoln University. I am delighted to welcome the conference back to Christchurch in what will be the 8th annual conference of PRRES. This is a unique opportunity to attend an informative and stimulating conference in "The Garden City of the World" during the best of its summer season.

The conference 

This conference provides a major international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest property related research. The conference provides a supportive environment for both academics and graduate students in a range of parallel sessions.

The venue 

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island. With a population of just over 300,000 it provides many wonderful attractions without being too big to get around. Served by a modern international airport, Christchurch gives visitors the best of what New Zealand has to offer. In a comparatively unspoilt corner of the world, residents and visitors enjoy wilderness adventure and sophisticated urban living in perfect balance. January is summer time in Christchurch with average daytime temperatures of 22C. The annual International Busking Festival provides first-class, free street theatre for two weeks from 18th January making Christchurch an excellent holiday choice for all the family. The conference will be hosted in a modern central city hotel, Hotel Grand Chancellor within easy access of a full range of local attractions. The conference dinner will be held at The International Antarctic Centre. Christchurch is the world's aerial gateway to the Antarctic and the evening will include an opportunity to view the interactive displays on show.
