The 25th Annual Pacific Rim Real Estate Society Conference is co-hosted by the University of Melbourne and Deakin University. Taking place at the award-winning Melbourne School of Design Building, this conference celebrates a quarter of a century of the Pacific Rim Real Estate Society. It brings together those interested in property research from the Pacific Rim and around the world. The conference is noted for its friendly, convivial atmosphere with a history of connecting researchers – which is why we have made that our theme this year. It is an opportunity to share your research, meet existing and potential collaborators, have new ideas and make lifelong friendships.
