National Real Estate
Women’s Forum

March 2, 2023

12 years & counting

Join us in New York City for the 12th annual Real Estate Women’s Forum!

The Real Estate Women’s Forum (“REWF”) is an annual commercial real estate industry gathering that highlights women in leadership roles as well as up-and-coming executives. The core DNA of REWF is an industry event that focuses on key business trends, challenges and opportunities, where the entire speaker faculty is composed solely of women.

After the last two years of successful national online conferences, we are making the in-person experience more inclusive of topics that are relevant nationally, as well to New Yorkers.

Whether you are looking to meet business partners, find mentors, advance your career, connect with old friends or meet new ones, REWF is a once-a-year opportunity. Don’t miss out!

We will be holding the conference on Thursday, March 2 in Midtown Manhattan. There will also be a Welcome Reception on the evening of Wednesday, March 1 for speakers and attendees.
