Essa que foi a terceira edição do Latin America GRI teve diversos períodos dedicados especialmente ao aprofundamento de relações entre os presentes, em ambiente informal e propício à geração de negócios, e discutiu os temas que mais impactam o mercado hoje. Em pauta, a realidade de cada parte da região (Argentina, Brasil, México e países andinos), as tendências para os vários segmentos imobiliários (residencial, escritórios, industrial & logística, varejo & shopping e hotéis) e especificidades em relação a financiamento, joint-ventures e parcerias.

Já o GRI Hospitality Latam, em sua primeira edição, realizada de forma integrada ao Latin America GRI, se centrou na análise de oportunidades para investimento no ramo de hospitalidade na região, aprendizados para garantir os melhores retornos e potencial local de cada nicho hoteleiro.

Board meeting

Na manhã que antecedeu o início do Latin America GRI e do GRI Hospitality Latam, os conselhos do GRI para Brasil, Argentina, Chile, Colômbia e México se reuniram para definir os próximos passos do clube nessas áreas geográficas, assim como trocar experiências sobre os negócios e tecer avaliações sobre os rumos do mercado. Participaram, no total, cerca de 40 conselheiros.

Em sintonia com toda essa movimentação, o GRI realizou a primeira GRI Real Estate Week New York. Uma comitiva com cerca de 30 integrantes de vários países latino-americanos participou de uma semana inteira de visitas guiadas para ver de perto, em detalhes, tendências, novos modelos e as melhores práticas do mercado nova-iorquino.
