About the eventAbout the event

GRI is markedly different to everything else in the real estate calendar, which is why it remains the leading annual meeting of senior leaders in Italy.

Rehearsed speeches. Sales pitches. Wasted time. That’s not GRI.

If you truly want to get under the surface and have deep, candid discussions with fellow real estate leaders (senior global and domestic players who have a focus on the Italian market), make lasting business connections, and create real friendships, you’re in the right place.
Set the agenda. Drive debate. Takeaway answers. That’s GRI.
