Our anchor event for members with AUM and capital at risk within BTR, Serviced Residential and Hospitality Assets, looking to foster further dealflow and match product to capital.

Unlike a conference, GRI Beds Europe is a special price discovery experience, with bespoke networking opportunities fostered through lucky encounters, pre-arranged matchmaking and open conversations driven by your peers.

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.

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.
