2018: Canada’s Largest Real Estate Conference Focuses on Major Trends, Strategies, Risks and Opportunities

Since 1992, The Real Estate Forum has become Canada’s largest annual national conference on real estate investment and management issues. It has earned this reputation by offering high quality speakers on very topical issues at relatively low registration fees.

The conference attracts more than 2,600 executives – last year, almost two-thirds were Vice Presidents or above within their respective organizations. The Forum was sold out in 2017 for the 11th consecutive year.

Networking functions are held concurrently with the Forum and represent a major element of the important and unique value of this industry leading conference.

The Co-Chairs’ Welcome Reception will be held on Tuesday evening, November 27 at the Fairmont Royal York hotel. But there are countless dinners, receptions and social functions that provide high quality levels of face-to-face contact – ranging from large scale events to one on one opportunities.

Disruption. Transformation. Action.

In keeping with its 27-year history, an informative program has been developed for 2018, featuring insightful leading
commentators, presentations, and interactive panel discussions. Over 130 well-known experts and practitioners from across Canada will be joined by senior executives from the U.S. and other countries.

They will include Presidents, CEOs and Managing Partners of many of the largest Canadian and global real estate organizations including pension funds, lifecos, REITs, REOCs, private equity funds, and privately owned entities. 

We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything the world has experienced to date. The speed of these current breakthroughs has no historical precedent. We do not know just how it will entirely unfold.

Moreover, it is disrupting almost every industry in every country. And the breadth and depth of these changes will transform the entire real estate market.

The Real Estate Forum along with the Global Property Market Conference held on November 27 will offer
three hard-hitting information-packed days, examining key issues, trends, challenges, risks and opportunities in the acquisition, investment, management, financing, development, and leasing of all property classes – office, industrial, retail, multi-unit residential and land. We will also be addressing the major transformational trends to assist you in developing strategies that can respond effectively within your organization.

We hope that you will take advantage of this very informative event which is only held once a year.
