With dedicated breakouts for Real Estate, Machinery and Business Assets, Trade Related Property and Arts and Antiques, this event will allow you to choose from over 12 sessions and customise your day according to your professional needs.

After last year’s sell out event, RICS Valuation 2020 comes back with an agenda packed with crucial technical and practical updates to deliver answers to some of the most pressing valuation challenges.
