Save the Date – 10th International ICVPME Conference

by Jennifer Aguilar | Feb 01, 2017

The 10th International Conference on the Valuation of Plant, Machinery & Equipment (ICVPME) will be held September 4-6, 2017 at the Pier One Sydney Harbour in Sydney, Australia.

The ICVPME Conference has become a major international event and a must-attend meeting point for professional plant and machinery valuers and specialists in the valuation of industrial assets.

Attendees receive a rare opportunity to meet and talk to colleagues from other countries who are bringing with them hundreds of years of collective professional experience and knowledge, as well as have the unique chance to come up to speed with the latest valuation techniques and sources of inputs, valuation standards and regulations, financial reporting and other niches of growing demand for valuation services, as well as new ways of marketing industrial valuation services.

New for 2017, the conference’s theme is “How Technology is Impacting Valuation”. Program highlights will include sessions on the profession’s new international standards and ethics; updates on the latest valuation trends impacting drones, green technology, marine, mining/oil and rail industries; regional updates on APEC, China and Nigeria markets; practical tips on due diligence, financial modelling and economic life cycle and lastly a highly anticipated mock trail.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Australian Property Institute and the Australian Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers and is supported by the American Society of Appraisers, Property Institute, International Valuation Standards Council, China Appraisal Society, Japanese Society of Independent Appraisers, and Auctioneers and Valuers Association of Australia.

Registration for the conference opens February 28, 2017. A block of rooms has been set aside for the conference at the Pier One. Rooms are limited so early booking is encouraged.
