British & Irish GRI

Post Brexit Pricing for Real Estate - What Possible Opportunities Can Investors Draw Out?

3 - 4 June 2020
Conrad London St. James

Overview

Structural shifts within the retail downturn, buy/sell strategies in the late cycle and pricing in the risk of politics are just some of the potential capital barriers facing the UK & Ireland real estate markets in 2020.

The British & Irish GRI 2020 is an exclusively senior meeting for global and local real estate investors, developers, with exposure to UK and Ireland real estate and capital markets to meet and further develop capital exposure and dealflow.

The unique event format is designed for senior decision makers and features a series of collegial closed-door discussions which enable you to interact and engage with everyone - much like an after-dinner conversation in your own living room. Identify like-minded peers, build meaningful business relationships, understand the local market trends and continue the conversation afterwards.
