No Presentations. Just Informal Conversations where everyone participates.

The GRI offline events have a key distinction from any other conference: we don't do presentations, speeches or powerpoints. All we have is a group of discussions where everyone participates, as little or as much as they like. Because of the seniority of our members, they find it more useful to exchange ideas rather than listen to long presentations. In our eMeetings we are able to bring the offline to online, reaching more leaders globally; this breadth of knowledge sharing makes the experience truly unique. You can join from your desktop, smartphone or Ipad. 

You don't sit and listen. You join a dialogue. Much like a conversation in your own living room, we host small round table style discussions where everyone can participate frankly and honestly.
"It was an engaging and insightful session, gave a good perspective on the current state of not only real estate but also consumer sentiments. It was quite user friendly and I encourage more of e-meeting sessions. We learn how each organization across countries are taking measures to combat something which has been declared as an Epidemic as of last evening."
