Real Estate Investment Summit 2018

Eden Roc Miami Beach Resort, Miami, FL
March 25, 2018 - March 27, 2018

-- --

By nature, commercial real estate is a complicated, capital intensive and relationship oriented business.

From finding and researching a commercial real estate asset, to negotiating its price and raising capital, to operating in accordance with a business plan, to selling the asset and distributing the revenue, each step is critical to the success of the overall picture and each participant is owed a specific fee.

The Opal Group 2018 Real Estate Investment Summit is centered on the “fourth asset class,” commercial real estate—today a capital market instrument as much as the stock or bond market. Our program agenda will explore both the role of both public and private real estate, both equity and debt.

Like the asset class itself, the people attending and participating in the Real Estate Investment Forum are vibrant and outward looking. Join us in March 25-27 in Miami and prove us right.

Presented as a series of panel discussions, the 2018 Real Estate Investment Summit will feature senior level fund and manager research as well as asset allocation personnel who will debate and explore the market for investing in commercial real estate. NOTE: Panel discussion will follow a “talk show” format led by a moderator. Panelist use of Microsoft PowerPoint is prohibited.
