In a bid to grow its presence in Europe, The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) has announced a partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) which will result in the professional bodies jointly hosting a series of real estate events across Europe in 2018.
SIOR has over 3,200 members worldwide and is the leading global professional office and industrial real estate association and RICS is the world’s leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property, infrastructure and construction. This new partnership will unite and benefit all members across Europe in a bid to increase awareness and support business to business transactions in key capital cities where development and investment opportunities are prevalent.
Renata Osiecka MRICS, Managing Partner at AXI IMMO Group and current President of SIOR Europe, said: “This partnership is a significant step forward for us and a sign of our continued commitment to growing our membership across Europe. As a professional body, RICS upholds the highest possible standards and support for its members, which complements our own ethos and approach to business within SIOR. We look forward to working together over the next year on a range of networking and learning events that will benefit all of our respective members.”
Maarten Vermeulen FRICS, Managing Director for Europe at RICS, said: “RICS is always on the lookout for collaboration with like-minded partners across Europe. RICS focusses on making the Built Environment more ethical, professional and transparent. SIOR adheres to the same, albeit from a different angle. Therefore, I am very pleased to see that we have found an opportunity to jointly organize events in Paris, Frankfurt and Warsaw. I honestly hope that we can further expand our cooperation and explore other opportunities for joint activities going forward.”
There will be a special rate available to RICS members for tickets to SIOR’s upcoming European Conference in Warsaw, which takes place from Wednesday 27 June to Friday 29 June 2018.
