Europe GRI 2016Paris, 14 - 15 September

Overview

Europe GRI is a get-together of senior investors, lenders and developers active in Europe.

The collegial discussions enable you to interact and engage - much like an after-dinner conversation in your own living room. Identify like-minded peers, build relationships, and continue the conversation afterwards.

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.

 

Join

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
