This summer will be the 15th occurrence of Valuation Expo. It is the biggest appraisal conference in the nation. This is the place to be for anyone in the industry. In honor of that we have put together 15 reasons why you should come to Valuation Expo in Las Vegas!
This is the best way to meet new clients, fellow appraisers, and others in the appraisal industry. Join the largest appraisal conference in the country and connect with other industry professionals.
- Continuing Education Take advantage of our interesting and engaging continuing education to earn 14 hours of state approved CE. This is a great way to take care of your license requirements while learning valuable information to help you in your everyday work.
Leave Las Vegas a winner! Last year our winners took home prizes ranging from Cash to TV's.. Exhibitors and Sponsors donate exciting prizes that attendees can win by filling out their appraisal bee cards. With over 30 winners every year, Valuation Expo has best odds of winning in Las Vegas.
- Increase Your Appraisal Business
We hear success stories all the time from appraisers who came to the show and immediately increased their business. You can see what a few appraisers thought of the show by watching this quick video. Another past attendee Carl Grissom told us, "I am a VA approved appraiser. If I hadn't been at Valuation Expo and spoke to the representatives at the VA booth, I wouldn't have gotten on their panel and I probably wouldn't be appraising today." There are so many opportunities at this show you are all but guaranteed to increase your business.
- Free USPAP
If the 14 hours of CE weren't enough you can attend the ACI sponsored USPAP class for free! On June 23, 2014, ACI will present a live 7 hour USPAP update course for FREE with the purchase of a Full Conference pass (attendee must buy both USPAP books).
- Discounted Rooms
We were able to get a very special room rate for all Valuation Expo attendees. This year the rooms at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino are just $65 a night. That is cheaper per night than it would cost a lot of people to spend the night in their own home! Be sure to reserve your room at that rate now as the room block ends May 30th.
- Valuation Visionary
This year is the fourth year of the famous Valuation Visionary award. Every year the Collateral Risk Network votes on the most influential mind in the appraisal industry for the year. This year we are proud to announce this year's winner, Jeff Bradford, founder of Bradford Technologies. Jeff is one of the strongest voices in bringing technology to the forefront for valuation.
