RICS at 150
Celebrate our 150-year history
23 OCT 2017
The Caribbean is a distinctive region with unique challenges within the construction and real estate industry.
We will convene property professionals for RICS’ 6th joint Valuation and Construction Conference with the International Property Tax Institute (IPTI) from November 2-3, 2017 in Trinidad and Tobago. More than 120 delegates from across the Caribbean, North America, the United Kingdom and beyond will attend to discuss best practices and issues affecting the built environment in the region.
Elizabeth Stair, CEO of the Jamaica National Land Agency; Marla Dukharan, Chief Economist with Bitt Inc; and Richard Borst, Senior Research Scientist with Tyler Technologies, USA are among the speakers slated for the conference. Presenters also include senior level executives from banks, valuation firms, construction companies, academics and finance professionals.
Topics on the agenda include:
"RICS has a strong presence in the Caribbean promoting the international standards that RICS enforces globally. We are happy to host this conference with IPTI to bring together experts to share best practices in constructing, measuring and managing real estate resources. In the Caribbean, property sales and development has a significant impact on nations’ Gross Domestic Product, employment, and foreign exchange inflows and therefore these are important discussions to have." Neil Shah, Managing Director, RICS in the Americas
The event will be held at Hilton Trinidad and Conference Centre, Belmont, Port of Spain.
