The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) is a multi-discipline, non-profit, international organisation of professional appraisers representing all appraisal disciplines. We established the ASA’s European Chapter in 2015, which is quickly growing into a leading pan-European appraisal organisation.
We are delighted to announce that we are hosting our 2nd ASA European Valuation Conference on 15 June 2018 in the beautiful city Prague. This year’s conference is about business valuation in Europe with a special focus on start-up companies. 200+ delegates attended our 1st conference in 2016, from major international corporate finance, valuation consulting and other companies. We are expecting a larger group this year with the addition of regulators and other governmental delegates. The conference will be preceded by a two-day workshop organised by one of the leading finance professors - Aswath Damodaran from New York University.
