OverviewOverview

With GDP growth in the major six CEE economies and S&P’s upgrade of Poland’s rating, the CEE market is becoming increasingly dominant as a hotspot for real estate investments. Liquidity is also improving as we see greater investment from Asian funds in portfolio-style deals.

Again hosted in Warsaw, CEE GRI 2019 will gather international and local real estate leaders for a day of discussions and a networking dinner on 14th & 15th May 2019 (Warsaw, Poland).

Unlike a typical conference, GRI meetings have no speakers or presentations. Instead, real estate decision makers will join fellow international investors, developers and financiers in informal and collegial discussions. See below for an insight into the discussion themes and participants.

If joining this exclusively senior-level meeting sounds useful, we would be pleased to welcome you.

Should we embrace disruptive tech, or shall we sit back, relax and argue that online services can never substitute the in store, physical experience?.
