The sunrise of oil field landscape

Join the Houston Chapter of American Society of Appraisers for its 11th Annual Award Winning 2021 ENERGY VALUATION CONFERENCE on Wednesday May 12, 2021 in a convenient VIRTUAL live webcast provided by Business Valuation Resources (BVR).

The HOUSTON 2021 ENERGY VALUATION CONFERENCE brings together pre-eminent energy valuation professionals and industry thought leaders presenting timely educational topics, including comments on the industry’s Post-COVID Energy Outlook. Featured speakers represent all sectors of the energy industry offering a variety of perspectives in business valuation, machinery & technical specialties, new accounting developments, appraisal review & management, real property, and more.

What makes energy valuation so important to appraisers?

This very 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 from 2021 EVC? 

A better understanding of the current economic and geopolitical conditions of the industry, and learn perspectives on challenges in energy valuations in this economic slump and COVID environment, including which sectors will return and when.  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.
