Some 37 papers were presented at the conference, which had as the theme "Trends in restructuring of real estate in an economy in transition."

Mr Logan's paper was entitled "Life Style Development - a New Zealand case study" The paper examined the drivers for lifestyle changes in New Zealand. It used Esk Hills, a new lifestyle development, situated on the East Coast of the North Island, approximately 10 kilometres north of Napier City as its case study. Institute CEO, Conor English, said today, "New Zealand has a reputation for leading the world. In a small way this is another example of this. Our property professionals are very good at what they do. We can learn from the world, but they can also learn from us. This award highlights that fact," Mr English concluded.

The paper will be published in the upcoming New Zealand Property Journal.
