  • I've been coming to GRI events for many years now. Every time I do so, I remember why I like to come: because I can meet so many different people in a very special environment. It's a very effective networking network.

  • The GRI format made possible to get together the most relevant players from the tourism and hospitality sector. Besides the themes discussed, let’s talk about the excelent seniorism of the participants, which allows us to have great debates.

  • The GRI conference is a great opportunity to meet a network with colleagues that you don't have an opportunity to see, speak about market practices experiences, learn about trends. It's a lot more effective and a lot more creative than actually a typical panel with a presenter and a three-panel discussion sitting on a chair on stage. I think it's much more conducive to an open and interactive event exchange.

  • It's much more interesting because it is none of this kind of "I speak you don't speak." There was enough interaction people kind of butting in asking questions, which is perfect.

Frequently asked questions

GRI Club is a high level, by-invitation-only organization that gathers the world’s top real estate and infrastructure CXOs, directors and experts. GRI Club members connect on a regular basis to build relationships, discuss solutions, deal flow, business opportunities and challenges.

Members join the club either by invitation or application only. The basic criteria to be admitted as a member can be found here, together with the short application form.

The courtesy membership consists of a limited access to our GRI online platform and membership directory. You can connect and attend private online discussions of your country/region but also the ones on a global level.

New members use the courtesy membership to understand our Club and activities and after some time, they are free to upgrade their memberships in order to get access to premium services and offline activities.

No. The GRI Club is expensive by design. It is just one of the ways we select our audience for the offline meetings. It continues being the most prestigious club in the industry, particularly our presencial meetings. At the same time, the GRI online platform is an opportunity for our members to connect with a broader network of executives around the world who are handpicked during our approval process. GRI Club accelerates deal flow and the discovery process of new business partnerships.

As a golden rule, the GRI keeps its integrity by never participating in any third party deal or transaction. Which means, GRI Club revenue comes from premium memberships, sponsorships, and offline event sales only.

No. Before an executive can become a member, one must go through an internal screening process. All members must be top executives/directors, as well as an active investor, developer or principal in either the real estate or infrastructure industry.

Once you’ve completed the online application the processing time will take up to 48 hours. If we need further information we will contact you and the application can last another 48 hours.

While we feel honoured to have the largest real estate and infrastructure companies in the world as active members in our community we are open for senior executives from companies with an annual revenue above US$10 million p.a.

We take a large number of information into consideration but in short, applying leaders must meet 2 basic criteria:
a) Seniority: decision-makers only.
b) Principal: invested real estate companies with capital at risk.
