Connecting French and Global Real Estate Leaders

Build meaningful relationships with your peers over strategic yet informal conversations

France GRI 2020 is a senior get-together gathering global and local real estate investors, developers, lenders and advisers active in France for two days of candid, behind closed door discussions and high level networking.

Unlike a typical conference, GRI meetings have no speakers or presentations. Instead, decision makers join informal and collegial discussions in which everyone participates. Re-connect with peers, forge new business partnerships and continue the conversation afterwards.
