30th Anniversary Conference

2017 marks our Society’s 30th anniversary since inception. To honour this landmark birthday, we held a special one-day conference.
The keynote session featured three of our Fellows looking at the changing face of property research, followed by a panel about required researcher skills 30 years from now. A group breakout session then debated our role in the context of trends that are impacting our profession, including climate change, policy, the internet and demographics. 

The closing keynote presentation was given by Stian Westlake, Policy Adviser to the Minister of State for Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation. The day culminated with celebratory drinks.
