ASEAN REAL ESTATE NETWORK ALLIANCE (ARENA). Get Connected.
Asean Real Estate Network Alliance (ARENA) is a regional grouping of eight National Real estate associations comprising Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. The idea grew from the fact that liberalization of the services sector in the region was gaining traction and there was a need to develop a platform for networking among real estate practitioners. Seeing a need for practitioners to go global, the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) initiated the idea of establishing a regional grouping with Singapore and the Philippines as founding members. Thus, through a memorandum on the 3rd March 2012, ARENA was formed. After five years and thru many meetings and conferences the ARENA charter was finally signed by the eight Presidents of the respective national associations in Bangkok in 2016. Today we are a full-fledged regional grouping dedicated to help members and Associations in areas of networking, legislation, enhancing marketing, training and cooperation. The first secretariat was set up under the auspicious of MIEA in Kuala Lumpur.
