FIABCI-USA Presents the Asia Pacific Real Estate Congress

FIABCI-USA, the International Real Estate Federation – U.S. Chapter will host more than 100 high level international delegates from twelve Pacific Rim countries in Honolulu, HI, from September 10-12. With the theme “Success across the Pacific – New Development Concepts”, the FIABCI Asia Pacific Real Estate Congress (APREC) will examine key issues for the real estate profession and the planet including the need to focus new real estate development around active transportation hubs. Expert panels will discuss smart, sustainable and profitable urban planning and environmentally friendly luxury resort development. APREC will culminate in the Asia Pacific Panorama where professionals from Australia, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and the US will provide cross border investment market updates.
Ma Ry Kim, Principal and Design Director at Group 70 International, an award winning design firm based in Honolulu, will present global trends in tropical resort development and FIABCI-USA President Ruth Kruger will introduce environmental innovations in Aspen ski resorts. “From the slopes to the surf, we’re taking a look at how luxury developers and operators can take the lead in reducing the environmental impact of their projects and educating the consumer on the need to rethink the way we work, play and live,” noted Ms. Kruger.
