It's a very candid informal discussion about real issues that the industry faces from pain points to challenges, futuristic views, it covers all topics from debt to land issues, to new structures consolidation."

"Why GRI? The way I see GRI having evolved over the last ten years and we've been seeing a lot of conferences coming along and GRI has become more than just a conference, it's a platform, it's a relationship, it's kind of a family coming together. So not only the annual event, but the quarterly interactions that we have allows the larger real estate family to engage in bond at a different level."
