Welcome from the PRRES Board

Welcome to the 11th annual PRRES conference in Melbourne.  Melbourne was the venue for the first conference held under the name of PRRES in January 1995 at RMIT. Previous conferences were held under the auspices of the Australian Real Estate Educators.  The annual PRRES conference circuit has become an established forum for regional and international property researchers. 
Strong links have grown between the members of the International Real Estate Society (IRES) of which PRRES is a member.  Other members of the IRES network include the American (ARES), European (ERES), Asian (AsRES), African (AfRES), Latin American (LaRES) and Middle East (MeRES) Real Estate Societies.  The various Society meetings provide many opportunities for researchers who desire a forum to present their work and develop joint research projects with colleagues in other countries and regions.
Since its inception PRRES has sought to develop links with the property industry.  This is evident from the continuing sponsorship relationship that is now in place with API (the Australian Property Institute), NZPI (New Zealand Property Institute) and RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors).  The inclusion of a specific industry forum as a keynote conference session, such as the Round Table on Thursday, has also become an important feature of our three-day event.
The PRRES journal, Pacific Rim Property Research Journal, now published four times a year, which together with the annual conference is a key element of PRRES’s strategic objective to promote and foster property research in our region.  A special edition of the journal will be devoted to the conference theme ‘property investment’.  Details of the call for papers for the special edition are included in this program.
We congratulate the joint conference hosts; the University of Melbourne, Monash and RMIT universities and the organising committee for their efforts in organising this conference.  We wish all participants a successful and enjoyable conference.
