Industry Conferences & Events
The Chen Institute convenes leaders in industry and policymaking in support of vigorous dialogue on issues of critical importance to the real estate sector and its role in the broader economy and society. Over the last decade, the Center for Real Estate Finance's spring and fall symposia have addressed issues including opportunity zones, infrastructure investment and finance, the reinvention of retail real estate, and the political economy of real estate.
In 2023, the Institute and its partners will host two new global forums. The Property Technology Symposium will address the role of proptech in advancing the real estate industry's environmental, social, and governance goals. Leveraging NYU's global network, the Global Real Estate Symposium will address opportunities in new and emerging real estate markets, with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific, South Asia, and Latin America regions.
