That’s a wrap on the Appraisal Institute 2019 Annual Conference


A good time was had by all at the Appraisal Institute 2019 Annual Conference in Denver last month. They say good things come in three’s and as a Gold Sponsor of the conference for the third year in a row, this year was especially noteworthy for us in the Mile High City.  

First and foremost, we were joined this year by one of our new Valcre teammates. In year’s past, the conference crew has included our four co-founders and members of our business development team. This year we were joined by one of our Sales Associates, Joe DiFabio. It was exciting to see how much the team has grown and evolved since last year’s event in Nashville.

We kicked things off Sunday evening in Denver at the Leadership Development and Advisory Council (LDAC) alumni reception. Our CEO and Co-Founder, Lucas Rotter, attended the gathering on the Denver City Terrace. The LDAC group gathers once a year in Washington, D.C., so the opportunity to connect with fellow appraisers in such an intimate and unique environment was definitely a highlight.

Monday was the official first day of the conference. The Valcre team prepared their booth inside the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center before hundreds of attendees filed in. In the afternoon, we heard from Keynote Speaker, Allison Massari, who talked a lot about leadership, adversity and the importance of resiliency. One standout quote from her keynote was, “Sometimes in life, there is no break. There is no quick fix. What you do is you dig deep and survive it.” This perspective was a great reminder to put our shoulder against the wall and keep pushing.

Monday evening the Valcre team headed to the Offsite Reception at Coors Field before hopping across the street for our Happy Hour event that was co-hosted with CompStak. We invited industry professionals to join us at the ViewHouse for food and drink, networking and an incredible view overlooking downtown Denver. We had a great turnout with more than one hundred people attending!

Day Two of the conference involved several games of Valcre corn-hole and many, many Valcre demos in the exhibit hall. A huge thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, inquired about Valcre and to those who signed up as new users of Valcre. A highlight for us was sharing the news about our special discounted rate available only to AI professionals—a new membership perk available to all AI members as of this year.

Wednesday was the final day of the conference for our team. A couple of our favorite breakout sessions from this day were, “The Modern Appraisal Practice: Selling a Product, a Service, or a Solution” and “Bringing Appraisal into the Modern Era.” Our industry continues to shift and evolve at a rapid speed, so every opportunity we have to learn how to better navigate the landscape, better serve our users and ultimately help businesses grow is incredibly valuable.

All in all, our trip to Denver was a success! The Valcre crew is already looking forward to Appraisal Institute 2020 Annual Conference, which we just learned will be held in sunny Orlando, Florida. Until next year!
