FORMAT

NOT YOUR TYPICAL CONFERENCE

A GRI is a get together of senior international and local real estate investors, developers and lenders. The discussion format enables you to interact with everyone in the room. Quickly find the right partners for your business, build high value relationships, and continue the conversation afterwards.


FORMAT

GRI has no speakers, no presentations. Instead, you have a selection of closed-door discussions where everyone can participate. Much like a conversation in your own living room, the dynamic environment allows you to engage with your peers in an informal and collegial setting.

 

PARTICIPATE AS A DELEGATE

Delegate slots are available for anyone senior currently active in real estate. Immerse yourself in a dynamic environment of informal group discussions where everybody participates. Discuss the latest opportunities, challenges and trends with top level decision makers. 

PARTICIPATE AS A CO-CHAIR

Available exclusively to senior-level investors, developers and lenders that confirm their participation in advance, chairing a discussion at Italia GRI is a way of attending while enjoying greater visibility, reduced rates and other benefits.
