PREA’s 40th anniversary celebration kicks into high gear at the Annual Investor Conference,
October 16-18, 2019 in Washington, DC!

At this not-to-be-missed event, we will look back at the last 40 years of institutional investing
and forward to a changing real estate landscape.

What has changed? What has stayed the same?

  • How has institutional capital influenced the marketplace?
  • As new firms enter the market and others consolidate, what does it mean for:
    • attracting and retaining talent
    • manager selection and oversight
  • What do evolving investment standards mean for the industry?
  • How are demographic changes, the urban resurgence, and other factors changing the investable real estate universe?
  • What’s the role of PropTech in sourcing and managing assets?

We invite you to join us in discussing these and other timely issues!
