IMN: The 16th Annual Winter Forum on Real Estate Opportunity & Private Fund Investing

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 (All day) to Friday, January 18, 2019 (All day)


Significant shifts are happening in commercial real estate (CRE).  
With the protracted cycle the CRE industry is in uncharted territory.
Is this is a fundamental shift? Does early/mid/late-cycle investing need to be re-evaluated?
With geo-political risk, tax reform and other critical industry disruptors that are causing or have the potential to cause major change across asset classes, where are we headed?
How in turn does this impact deal flow, valuations, large fund dominance in fundraising, the availability and cost of capital, etc., etc., etc.?
As some investment opportunities recede, what others are rising to take their place? What are the innovative investment strategies that early adopters are already reaping the rewards from?
Tacking these fundamental issues, IMN is excited to once again host the largest event of its kind on the West Coast: 16th Annual Winter Forum On Real Estate Opportunity & Private Fund Investing, January 16-18, 2019, The Montage Resort & Spa, Laguna Beach, CA.
Attracting 1000+ registrants each year this three-day event is renowned for its history of delivering critical market information, strategic insights and unmatched networking opportunities.
Join us in January for the industry insights and connections that could make or break your year.
