The Real Estate Equity Forum East brings together institutional investors and fund managers, private capital and family offices, direct lenders and debt funds along with operating and development partners to create an in-person marketplace for real estate capital markets at both the fund level and deal level.  

The conference is invite-only and revolves around a set of four off-the-record peer-to-peer roundtables designed to bring together peer groups around today’s challenges, as well as specialized workshops, insightful panels, ample networking time as well as a connection platform to allow you to book meetings in advance of the event.
