The New Zealand & Australian Property Institutes will hold their first joint conference this year, on 22-23 July in Queenstown.
NZ Property Institute chief executive Conor English said the event was expected to be held every 2 years, rotating between the 2 countries.
NZ Property Institute president Chris Seagar said: “There has been talk for some years of unification of our currencies, our stock exchange & our commercial laws. The reality is that increasingly our 2 property markets are becoming more closely integrated, both from an investment perspective & from a professional practice perspective. This conference is an important step in the development of unified property market practice between the two countries.”
The decision to hold a joint conference follows the release in February of the first set of unified professional practice standards, governing the professional practice of all members of both institutes.
The Queenstown conference, recognising the strategic tourism location of the venue, has the theme: “Thrills, spills & adventure in property.”
