Featured speakers represent all sectors of the energy industry offering new perspectives on business valuations, machinery & technical specialties appraisals, accounting developments, appraisal review & management, mineral appraisals, real property, financial analysis, and more. Learn how this dynamic and cyclical industry affects businesses world-wide and how it plays a vital role in the performance, cost structure and profitability of your clients. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the current economic and geopolitical conditions of the industry, and learn perspectives on challenges in energy valuations, including which sectors are rebounding.

 

What makes energy valuation so important to appraisers?

This dynamic and cyclical industry affects all cities around the world. Even if your client isn’t an energy company, energy can still play a vital role in its performance, cost structure and profitability.

 

What will attendees take away?

A better understanding of the current economic and geopolitical conditions of the industry, and learn perspectives on the challenges in energy valuations as the industry turns toward renewables, and how this impacts each sector. EVC is a very holistic and well-rounded conference that attendees enjoy and learn from – not just appraisers. Our goal is to expand our outreach to include those in related professional groups and industry associates.
