GRI Retail eSummit 2020
1st - 3rd December
Retail real estate was already on a downturn; consumer and tenant demand had fuelled pricing rationalisation - savvy investors, operators and owners were waiting for rock bottom to jump on a new cycle. Now, with the impact of coronavirus, much more than cheap prices will be affected; retail as a whole is facing a structural shift. As the bottom economy is locked down, we might just see a revolutionary supply/demand shift, as well as repurposing and repositioning of obsolete retail space that will redefine winners and losers and disrupt the real estate value chain.

Join the global GRI eCommunity to discuss such challenges and opportunities through candid peer to peer discussions. Navigate the current challenges presented by Coronavirus recovery and real estate changing demands; especially cash flow, maintaining liquidity and landlord/tenant partnerships. Engage with c-level retail real estate leaders on what the post Coronavirus world of retail might look like and what opportunities this might open up for buy/sell and repositioning.

Participation in this event is by invitation only. If you would like to join our members please submit your interest here.

Mc Lean | VA | USA
Back in 1993, when Founder, Chairman, and CEO Bob Faith set out to build Greystar, he saw a highly fragmented multifamily industry that was more focused on assets than people. He envisioned the need for an industry leader, a blue-chip company that operated with the highest integrity and character in delivering world-class services to residents, property owners and investors in multifamily real estate. He said, “Why not us? Let’s go be that company.” With a winning strategy and a focus on people, Greystar set out to meet that need -- guided by the mission of enriching the lives of those we touch by doing things the right way. Greystar has learned what’s important to people when it comes to a place to call home and the services that enhance the living experience. And that’s why we put our heart and soul into providing beautiful living environments.
