Days to event:

The 2021 Joint Real Estate Conference by the Asian Real Estate Society (AsRES), the Global Chinese Real Estate Congress (GCREC) and the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA) will take place between July 18 and 21, 2021 and go virtual. The conference will be hosted by the Department of Real Estate and Institute of Real Estate and Urban Studies of the National University of Singapore. The conference will provide a forum for academics, practitioners and policymakers in the areas of real estate finance, development and investment, housing, urban planning, urban economics, and public policy to exchange ideas on important issues with a theme of “Future of Real Estate: Impacts of Technologies and Global Changes”.

While we planned for an in-person conference at Raffles City Convention Centre in Singapore, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic presents restrictions on travel and gathering. Therefore, we have decided to facilitate the virtual conference this year. The virtual conference will offer the AsRES-AREUEA International sessions (presentations in English) and GCREC sessions (presentations in Chinese or English).

亚洲房地产协会 (AsRES)全球华人房地产大会 (GCREC)美国房地产与城市经济协会 (AREUEA) 将于2021年7月18日至21日举行网络虚拟2021年联合房地产会议。我们原计划于新加坡莱佛士会议中心举行现场会议,但由于新冠病毒的大流行对旅行和聚会造成了限制,今年我们决定改为网络虚拟会议。

会议将由新加坡国立大学房地产系房地产与城市研究学院主办。会议将为房地产金融,发展与投资,住房,城市规划,城市经济学和公共政策领域的学者,从业者和政策制定者提供一个论坛,就重要问题交换意见,主题为“科技与环球变化对 未来房地产的影响”。本虚拟会议包括AsRES-AREUEA国际会议(英文演示)和GCREC会议(中文或英文演示)。

Urban Renewal and Community (Chinese)

Urban renewal involves a political, social, economic as well as technical partnership on the basis of the unification of the visions from politicians, sociologists, economists and designers as well as on the wider acceptance of a community and people. It is thus a multi-faceted process which should not be viewed merely as a physical and financial issue, but as a sociological, cultural, economic and political as well as technical matter. This plenary session gathers urban planner, urban designer, practitioner as well as researcher of governance together to conduct an in depth discussion on the issues associated with urban renewal and community.

城市更新是指一种政治、社会、经济和技术的合作关系,其基础是政府,社会学家、经济学家和设计师的综合愿景,以及社区公众的广泛接受。因此,这是一种牵扯到多方面利益的复杂过程,不应仅仅被视作物质和财政问题,而应是一个社会学、文化、经济和政治议题。本次圆桌会议汇集了城市规划师、城市设计师、业界房地产科技的精英, 以及政府治理的专家,一起就城市更新和社区相关问题展开深入讨论。
