Leverage Change. Create Bottom-Line Impact.

The 7th annual Commercial Real Estate Summit, presented by Mazars USA, is the leading conference for commercial real estate owners, investors and developers as well as large and fast growing corporate and retail tenants. The program has been curated to be high-value and high-impact by moving beyond self-serving presentations and instead diving into real world challenges and opportunities that impact our businesses today.

This year includes a special VIP Access that provides select principals and corporate / retail tenants with access to specially curated closed-door problem solving sessions, as well as access to the VIP reception. Access is invite-only, so contact us today to apply. Closed-door sessions tackle pain points in retail, office, industrial, hospitality and capital sourcing.

This year’s forum will feature keynote speaker David R. Weinreb, Chief Executive Officer of The Howard Hughes Corporation, the developer behind the revitalization of Seaport District NYC. Don’t miss the opportunity to join him along with other CRE industry leaders, market experts and corporate, industrial and retail end users, as we discuss what is really happening in today’s commercial real estate marketplace.
