About CEE GRI 2024

CEE’s real estate market seems to have a few hidden gems to overcome current challenges and achieve success. Join us at CEE GRI 2024 to share insights and source deal flow among the most senior and accomplished real estate leaders active across the region.


In its 18th edition, CEE GRI is stronger than ever. The discussions will cover doubts about investor appetite, inflation, foreign capital flow and asset resilience as they are looming large and adding to the prevailing uncertainties in the market. But despite these challenges, CEE appears to show resilience when compared to other European countries. What is the forecast of the real estate market and where can we find the best investment opportunities?
