The API and IAAO International Research Symposium is a unique, one-of-a-kind environment serving as the global incubator for sharing new discoveries in valuation, showcasing automated valuation model methods and pushing government innovation across the world. The Symposium participants are creators and preeminent leaders from within the property industry working in the areas of data, prop-tech, and spatial systems.
