The Annual AIC Conference & Trade show will for the first time be held as a fully virtual, online event.

The theme of this year’s conference – Thriving in Times of Change– reflects the way our world has changed since the sudden outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. As we continue to adapt to the sweeping changes in our daily lives, the appraisal industry continues to adapt and innovate to navigate the current environment.

Join us online, in real time, via our 3D platform for a unique learning opportunity from the comfort of your home, office (or home office!).


The premier event for real estate valuation professionals!

This year’s Conference comprises a range of online features, including: livestream webinars, panel discussions, online presentations and interactive Q&A sessions.

Networking Opportunities

The 3D platform features highly interactive virtual spaces for networking and collaborative learning. Details on the planned group networking sessions (on Monday, May 31st and Wednesday, June 2nd) are available on the event agenda!

The Auditorium is where attendees will access the live stream webinars and education sessions. This is the space where all attendees will arrive to watch presentations, keynotes and participate in our networking sessions. The event agenda is viewable from this space as well.

The Trade Show Hall is the dedicated space for our sponsors to highlight their services and offerings from a virtual booth. From the booths, attendees can access downloadable assets (for their virtual swag bag), find links to the sponsor's digital resources and interact with the booth representatives via private or public messages. And yes, there are real people on the other end of the screen!

The Networking Chat Rooms are the social hub of the event where attendees will meet and share information with all other attendees via group/private chats. This is networking made easy!

To encourage attendees to navigate through the virtual environment we do have a Leaderboard Gamification running throughout the Conference. There are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes up for grabs for completing a series of tasks in the virtual environment.

Any questions, comments or concerns about any aspect of the event, our event organizers on standby to help at the Info Desk . If you are having any Technical Issues , this is also the place to go.
