BVC Conference

The Baltic Valuation Conference (BVC)

The Baltic Valuation Conference (BVC), which dates back to 1989, is an informal meeting of property valuers from the Baltic countries. Attendees of the conference include property valuers, academics focusing on the property market, valuation procedures and methods, and others interested in property valuation issues. Participation in the conference does not only serve education but also contributes to  exchange of experiences and methods, and establishes contacts with colleagues in the field.

Since 1992, the conferences have been held annually. Countries that have hosted participants include Iceland, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Norway, Lithuania, Latvia and Russia. In 2003 and 2016, The Baltic Valuation Conference was held in Gdansk, Poland. In 2020-2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meetings were held online.

Konferencja BVC - wrzesień 2023 - Warszawa -

The 33rd BVC

The 33rd Baltic Valuation Conference will be held on September 7-9, 2023 in Warsaw, Poland, and will be conducted in a hybrid format (in-person and online in real-time). Thanks to the Erasmus+ project, participants are exempt from conference fees (the official part of the conference). And in preparation for the conference, we suggest attending professional English language training for property valuers. Training webinars are posted on our website under the course tab.

We encourage you to keep an eye on the project website – more information on the detailed programme of the upcoming event and speakers will be posted soon. Please note that those declaring to participate in the entire event will be given priority for attending the conference.
