RECM Conference 2021

May 2020 Virtual Event

Over the last decade, our half-day program has become a “must attend” event among industry leaders in the public REIT and private markets spaces, and draws a sophisticated audience of real estate fund managers, REIT executives, real estate investors and investment bankers. As a result of the current environment, we recently held a virtual session that focused on the state of the real estate capital markets, global capital flows and Europe. Updates were provided by several speakers who participated in our most recent conference in January 2020.
