Latin America GRI Real Estate 2022 reaches its 6th edition.
In New York, CEOs, presidents and senior executives will meet in an intimate and informal environment to strengthen their business relationships and establish the guidelines that will drive the Latin American real estate sector in the coming years.
In a challenging context, conditioned by the economic, political, health and social turbulence brought by the pandemic, the evolution of lifestyles, consumption and work, this event will feature more than 25 discussions among the most relevant leaders in the region. In the topics addressed, they will exchange positive experiences and lessons learned related to housing, multifamily, logistics, retail, offices, hospitality, mixed uses, ESG, technology, financing and investments.
As GRI Club’s main goal is to develop meaningful relationships between members, the venue will feature rooms exclusively for private meetings, and the staff will support the matchmaking with potential business partners, both personally and through the online community of members.
Be part of the most important Real Estate meeting in Latin America and connect with leaders in a high-level networking environment.
