Italia GRI is an exclusive and senior Italian & European Real Estate gathering that takes place in Milan annually with the aim to help increase deal flow within the players in the industry.

Logistics, and alternative housing, are these still our gold mines when it comes to asset class investments or are there new pots of gold awaiting for us elsewhere? What new asset classes prove to be resilient in the future and which won't? After a successful comeback post covid, now in its 9th year, participants come together once again looking for new deal flow strategies by welcoming domestic and international Private Equity Investors, Fund Managers, Debt Funds, NPL Buyers, LP’s Developers, Asset Owners, Operators and Lenders invested across all Italian regions and asset classes.
