Provides direct access to commercial investors and influential industry leaders, including commercial brokers and developers, state and local REALTOR® associations, business development agencies, government officials, REITs, and national and international investors.

During the Summit, the assembled group of experts will participate in discussions on ways to strengthen the role of real estate in revitalizing communities by facilitating investment and promoting commercial property sales and rentals, improving neighborhoods and creating jobs.

Several featured sessions include:

NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun and other leading real estate economists will discuss investment opportunities in US commercial real estate, the impact of emerging trends in consumer behavior and work styles, the adaptive reuse of existing assets, and the flow of domestic and global capital into commercial real estate.

Yun will also host a panel discussion on the US economic outlook in a post-COVID-19 environment, the likely course of monetary, fiscal and international policies, and the implications for the recovery and flow of domestic and global capital across all property types.

Greg Lindsay from the NewCities Foundation will give the opening speech on “The Future of Cities”.

NAR President Charlie Oppler will close the event with an interview with Alex Rodriguez – 14-time Major League Baseball All-Star and 2009 World Series Champion – about his massive investment portfolio in commercial real estate.
