About APREC Congress

FIABCI Singapore, which is part of the International Federation of Real Estate in 60 countries and Special consultant with NGO status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations Organisation (ECOSOC), is partnering the Singapore Institute of Surveyors & Valuers (SISV), a professional body for the real estate and construction industry and SAEA Ltd, one of the key industry bodies for estate agents and salespersons, to jointly organise the Asia Pacific Real Estate Congress (APREC) 2013 at Concorde Hotel, Orchard. The theme of the Congress is Globalization of Asia Pacific Real Estate – Challenges and Opportunities.

The Organizers of APREC 2013 takes cognizance of the fact that this is an era when wealth transfers are rapidly moving into Asia Pacific, particularly into real estate investments as globalization brings together greater awareness of such opportunities across the world. Despite the different regulatory and tax regimes, cross-territorial real estate transactions are becoming the norm in Asia Pacific as governments in the region encourage free trade and tourism. As such, real estate professionals such as valuers, facility managers and salespersons/negotiators play an interrelated, pertinent role in assisting investors realize their investment potential and yield.

This Congress seeks to understand the challenges and opportunities which prevail in the region for real estate professionals as a result of globalization. It also aims to draw the industry experts’ knowledge in real estate practice and be the catalyst for professional upgrading in building a robust, compliant as well as globalized real estate industry.
