At GRI Club, we've moved beyond the conventional real estate event format, recognizing the need for more meaningful engagement through conversations driven by the very professionals who are actively shaping the investment industry. 

Europe GRI brings together top-tier real estate players from around the world, including investors, lenders, developers, and industry leaders, for two days of exclusive roundtable investment discussions, pre-scheduled meetings, and soft introductions that will enable you to focus on dealflow opportunities.

In our unique discussion setting, participants come together to collaboratively create deal flow across asset classes, investment solutions, and countries - all whilst forging valuable connections.

At Europe GRI 2024, you can find your ideal business partners, cultivate valuable relationships, and continue these conversations through members-only Club Meetings held throughout the year and on our innovative online platform.
