The SPR has been representing property researchers since 1987. Their seminars debate topical issues and the networking opportunities are unrivalled. (They also count towards CPD hours.) Junior analysts are able to rub shoulders with Heads of Research Departments often in informal situations. SPR often collaborates with other associations to offer events with a wider appeal and is a member of the Property Industrial Alliance group. Site visits are arranged for members to see 'behind the scenes' of major developments and SPR members also have the opportunity to access discounted rates to attend related courses and conferences organised by similar organisations.
